I have been taking Orsythia for 3 years and I have been taking it on time since I started. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on Sunday and didn't get to take my pill until 5 hours later. I am supposed to get my period today and my period is never usually late. My breasts are swollen and my back hurts (like they usually do when I PMS). Should I be concerned about being pregnant?
Taking it late only reduced your protection a tiny bit. I don't think you need to worry. Just don't make a habit of it. Your period is probably just going to be different this time.
