Diane 35 regulates ovultaion?

Hi, i have one question and i am wondering if you guys could help me. I recently started having sex with my girlfriend and on one ocation the condom came off. But i dont know how much time happened before i realized, but i didn't come, there was only precum. This happend on September 23, and the menstruation is due to come between October 12 or 13. Now, my girlfriend has Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS),so tracking aovulation is a little hard, with a 28 day cycle she would ovulated around September 28 or 29. She has been on diane 35 for about 2 years. Diane 35 is a pill that works as contraception pill and also helps to regulate her cycle. My main question is that she forgot to take the third pill of the first week and took it the next day at the same time she took the next one (24 hours later), so she took 2 pills in one day. Was she still protected? and also, since PCOS interferes with the menstrual cycle, Diane 35 is supposed to regulate it and therefore her cycle es a 28 days one, wich has never missed. Assumming that the pill fails, would she have ovulated 14 days before menstruation just like everybody else? Or is it entirely imposible to know because of PCOS.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

A birth control pill like Diane prevents ovulation completely which is why a woman does not get pregnant when taking birth control pills exactly as prescribed. If she has PCOS (making ovulation difficult in the first place) the Pill still prevents ovulation.

It sounds like she made up her pill (and took her next pill at the same time)  as directed so pregnancy should not be an issue for her.
