Iv been on birth control for a while now. I'm pretty good about taking all of them. Recently I missed one on Saturday night (my last third week pill) and had sex with my boyfriend Sunday. And i realized I missed the pill Sunday night so I doubled up and took both. He says he didn't think anything happened, but a little might have gotten inside me.. I should start my period within a few days.. but I am still worried..

Hi I ran out of pills on Monday but me and my boyfriend has sex Sunday night (the day of my last pill) therefore I didn't have another pill for Monday morning. I read online that sperm stays in your body for 5 days. Could I be pregnant?

Hey. I've recently had sex 2 days after my period ended and I've kept track on the pills. I'm worried because I wasn't fully protected pill wise because I was only on day 2 of the real pills and usually it says you need to take 7 consecutive days of birth control until it really works. My boy friend and I also used a condom but after some leaked out in the bottom but I don't know if I got any inside of me. I'm so worried because I now have had a UTI for 2 days. Could I be pregnant? Thanks

Hi. Um im currently taking the pill. On sat. Of my 3rd week I had sex with my bfand he didnt wear a condom and he did cum inside. I forgot to take the pill that night but I took it the next day. Then on my 4th week I forgot again to take my pill on a tues but made up for it. Brown discharge came out of me and then light blood came after so I thought I had started my period. But now im noticing that it is superrr light then usual. Could I be pregnant. ?

I took a sugar pill by accident instead of my 11th pill of my first pack. I didn't realize this until 24 hrs later when I went to go take my 12th pill, so I took the one I missed and the one I was suppose to take all at once. The next day I took my pill again and then afterwards I had unprotected sex. Could I get pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,
I think you are safely protected against pregnancy because you made up for the mistaken sugar pill by taking the missed active and daily active pills.
By getting back on track, you were protected and really didn't have unprotected sex.

Hello Anonymous,

If you have been taking your birth control pills daily, then you are protected against pregnancy and it would not have been unprotected sex. I do not think you have anything to worry about.

Hello Anonymous,
If you do not have vaginal bleeding, similar to what you experience during previous periods, by next Saturday, August 4, take a home pregnancy test.

If the test result is negative and you still do not have a normal period, make an appointment with your physician. Blood tests and a physical examination may find the reason for your menstrual cycle changes.

Hi, if you have been taking birth control pills for a couple months but you had unprotected sex the week after your period on the seventh day after taking the pill (yasmin says you should be fine after you take the pill for seven days after your period) and i took it on that 7th day, will i be fine for not being pregnant? Its 2 weeks after and i've continued to keep taking the pills with no signs of pregnancy but i a still worried.
