Her medical, surgical and gynecological histories are unremarkable. She does not smoke, drinks alcohol only occasionally, and is not on any other medications.\n\nGretchen has forgotten to take her pills for three consecutive days, because her son was ill, and she was busy taking care of him. Although she has not engaged in intercourse within the past 48 hours, she is sexually active, and does not desire a pregnancy. Naturally, she is worried.\n\nFurther questioning reveals that she is using biphasic pills, with 28 pills per pack, and that she is currently in the third week of the current pack.\n"}]}
