im on trinessa and ive been on bc since july,but on either october 20 or the 22nd, i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and he came inside of me and took my pill after (yes i take them on time eveey night). and ever since then i've been stressing over the fact that i could be pregnant becayse ive been feeling bloated like 99.8% of the time since that night, but ik bc pills are very effective. do i have to be worried?
You were protected. If you take them every day within an hour either way of your chosen time, you have a 1% or less chance for pregnancy. If you take them like the average woman, maybe a little late here and there, miss an occasional pill, you are still 96-98% protected so no worries! That's as good as it gets. The only thing MORE effective is to not have sex at all!! bloating is a common side effect of being on the pill OR since you are worried you are hyper "in tune" with your body and are noticing every little twinge 100 times more than you usually would since you are stressed about being pregnant. Our minds can do crazy things to our bodies when we believe something!
