My girlfriend and I had unprotected sex and the next day she took a pill of Yasmin, she decided not to continue taking the rest. What are the effects of stopping after 1 pill? and will it protect against pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Birth control pills protect by preventing ovulation. But, a woman only gets that protection by taking an active pill every day.

Your girlfriend got no protection by taking one birth control pill after having intercourse.
