I'm freaking out, please help! I don't want to be pregnant.

So on my second week of my bc pill I missed one day. I take them in the morning when I wake up, but that morning I woke up and was busy so I completely forgot. That same day my boyfriend and I had sex without a condom because there were none left. I know it was a stupid decision and I didn't realize I forgot my pill until I got home around 11pm that night. I took it immediately. It has been about 5 days after and I usually have discharge, and today it was alittle brownish. People keep telling me I'm pregnant and I really don't want to be and it's too late for morning after pill. I'm terrified to ask my mother about it. I have also been really stressed lately so my body does weird things when I'm stressed. I haven't missed any other pills this month or the past few months as a matter of fact. What do I do??? I feel like waiting 14 more days will kill me. Please help! I don't think 1 pill would make that big of difference!

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for posting your question. The only way you can be pregnant is if you were also ovulating that week which shouldn't occur since you are on the pill. Missing one pill may not be enough to put you at risk for pregnancy. However, you HAVE to be more responsible and realize that nothing is 100% effective and if you do not take your pack exactly as directed then you are putting yourself at risk. Stress can also change your period so take a deep breath and try to forget about it-- continue taking your pills as directed and if your period is late take a pregnancy test. 

Good Luck,
