I have been on Cryselle for 8 months. I started a new pack on May 17 and took 2 pills 1-1.5 hours late during that first week. On May 24 (the start of the second week of the pack), I had sexual intercourse with my boyfriend and we didn’t realize that the condom broke until later. I freaked out and we went to get Aftera (a type of Plan B) because I took a couple of pills later than usual. Typically I wouldn’t have, but because it was the first week of the pack when I took them late, I was unsure if I was protected completely. Would the dose emergency contraception plus the regular birth control make me miss my period? I usually have a short and light period with BC as is. Thanks in advance!
Oh absolutely! Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. Added to your regular hormonal birth control, it could mess your menstrual cycle up for months!
Everyone reacts differently, so it's impossible to say exactly how long you'll be effected for.
Do a pregnancy test to be sure.
