Pill+Pull out method?

I'm really good at taking my pill, within an hour every night and I don't forget to take it. Currently I'm on the start of my placebo week of my 28 day pill cycle, so my period should be coming in the next day or so. Last night, I got to see the guy I've been seeing for awhile for the first time in ages. We didn't have a condom but had sex. But I should be fairly protected by the pill, right? Plus he didn't finish in me, I made sure of that. How concerned should I be about pregnancy? This doesn't warrant plan b right?

Like I said earlier, if you have not missed a pill.  Then, you should be more protected against pregnancy.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  If you take your pill everyday and don't miss a day.  Then you should be protected.  But, it's never 100%.  The withdrawal method is not a safe birth control. As far as taking any emergency pill, you will need to ask your doctor. If you feel concerned, it might be good to wait until your period is due and take a home pregnancy test if your period is late. 

Hope this was helpful?

Well my period is due in the next day or so. But my understanding was that you took plan b when you used no protection. So I should be OK since I am on the pill and take it correctly?
