Alright so i just went to the doctor Tuesday and got my birth control(its called reclipsen) for the first time ever. i took it that day, because they told me i was late, to take two Tuesday and two Wednesday and after that just take one Thursday and so on ... So i took my birth control both Tuesday and wed like they told me to do .
well on Thursday i had sex with my boyfriend and he ejaculated in me twice, I still took my birth control that day and i had only been on it for two days prior to the accident. how great of a risk do i have to be pregnant? Also before i even started bc my normal cycle started on the first of every month so i believe my ovulations days were around the 16?
I'm really scarred i may become pregnant please help!!

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Firstly, you need to make sure you take the time to read all the leaflets attached to your birth control pills.

I have a question for you before I can answer - are you a Sunday starter or a first day of your period Starter? This may make a slight difference as to your pregnancy risks. Where were you in your cycle, when you took your first pill?

I actually started my period on tuesday of last week (june 1)and ended that saturday (june 5),then the following tuesday(june8) i got my birth control pills and took them immediately but two making up for sunday and monday and two the next day as well . I was off my cycle 3 days prior to taking the birth control..
also i have had this insane itchiness lately and i can't stop itching could it be my birth control ? It started just as soon as i started taking it so im assuming its my medication.
thank you so much for the help!

"insane itchiness" is not a side effect of taking birth control pills! Where are you itching?

Please call your gynecologist first thing Monday morning and talk to the nurse/doctor about your symptoms of being itchy!
