I'm on the pill and I take it around the same time (give or take 10mins) or at the same time every night(usually 10pm). My boyfriend and I are sexually active and we usually use a condom. On the 2nd of July the condom broke and he finished inside me. I had already taken my pill for that night before we had sex. The next night we were busy and I took my pill around 40mins late. I don't think that it should render the effectiveness of the pill. But I am on the 4th day of my placebo pill and I haven't gotten my period yet. Should I be worried?
Hi Laurel, it is a tiny bit concerning considering that if you were ovulating that that would have occurred just around the time of your accident. If you have still not gotten your period after 7 days, a home pregnancy test may well be in order (as unlikely as a pregnancy is).
Not all birth control pills work the same way and some are more effective than others depending on the individual.
Wishing you the best of luck. :-)
