What are my chances of being pregnant?

Friday (09/30/11) my boyfriend and I had sex and the condom broke. He did come inside me. I am on regular birth control and take it exactly at 10 o'clock every morning (I am kinda paranoid about it). But early in the week on Monday (09/26/11) I got too paranoid. Around 4 pm I saw my birth control pack and freaked out thinking I hadn't taken it that morning. So I stuff the TUESDAY pill down my thoart quickly before realizing it was Monday and I had taken my pill at 10 am already that morning. I called the pharmacy and they said to go on taking my pills but skip tuesday since I had taken it on Monday. I had some spotting during the week.

Because the condom broke I took the next choice pill to be extra safe. I took it 12 hours after having sex (the soonest I could get a hold of it). Than of course took the second tablet 12 hours after the first. Now a day later I am having some light pink spotting.

I am really scared what are my chances of being pregnant?

Please help me! Thank you!

Hi Anon,

Relax. You should be fine. Now that you have taken Next Choice, don't stress out if you notice that you start spotting or have an irregular period-- this is a side effect of Next Choice.

All the best,
