I started my new birth control pack about four hours late. I did have unprotected sex around that time and he did ejaculate inside of me. Does starting my new pack four hours late matter?
I also missed a pill two days ago, on Monday. I didn't realize that I even missed it until it was time to take my next birth control pill. So I took both of them at the same time on Tuesday. The pills I missed were in week two of my birth control pack. I had unprotected sex Friday and he ejaculated inside of me then too. Could I be pregnant?
I take Pirmella 1/35 if that helps. I've been on Pirmella for about 1 and 1/2 months. I was on a different birth control before that for about 3 years.
Every pill that you miss will reduce the effectiveness of your birth control so it is important that you remember. If this is a problem for you talk with your doctor. You may need to look at another method of birth control like an implant for example.
It wouldn't have mattered that you were four hours late with your first pill, at least you remembered and took the pill straight away. And you did the right thing by taking two pills together once you remembered the next time but it is important that you don't miss any more pills this cycle.
