Hey ladies sooo ... Ivr been getting the swing of birth control im on the pill and i started the 15th of February ive had my first period and now im on my second pack with about 3 weeks left , well for the first time my boyfriend finished insdie me last friday and i didnt have my pill wih me until sat. At 1am .... I took two as soon ae i got home ... Would i be protected against pregnancy still or should i have taken plan B..... I continued the regime of my regular dosage sunday and Monday we had sex again and he pulled out but some of his cm ws left inside ... Now i took the pilk early in the day before we had sex about 30mins+ so im not worried about being pregnant from Monday but from Friday im worried we messed up ! Someone help me please .... To Ease this panic ... However im pretty sure we had sex after my fertile days.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern.

You did the right thing by doubling up on the dose of your birth control pills as soon as you could. It is too late now to take an emergency contraceptive. To be effective, you must take the pill within 72 hours following unprotected intercourse.

I realize that you are new at taking birth control pills. But, it is very important to take a pill at the same time each and every day.
You must pack your pills with you when you are away from home.

To put your mind at ease, I think you should be okay. The sure way to know is if you have vaginal bleeding while on the inactive pills.
