if novynette is taken before having sex, is pregnancy possible?

I took the pill at 12:30 in the day on the 21st day of the cycle and had sex with my bf later that afternoon. Would the pill still work to avoid becoming pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and sharing your question. If you take the pill exactly as your prescriber recommended, then it will help to avoid becoming pregnant. Just remember, that all birth control methods are not 100% safe. There is always a risk of getting pregnant when you have sex. If you are concerned or worried, contact your prescriber of the Novynette and have him or her reassure you.

Anon, did this help?
