He did NOT cum inside me. However, i am aware that sperm may be ejaculated throughout intercourse. I have been taking my Microgestin Fe 1/20 pills religiously for almost a month now. Starting from March 3rd. This is my first month and first time on birth control as well. My concern is: i have not finished the white pills yet. (i have 2 white pills and 7 brown pills left). Considering this incident, what are my chances of being pregnant?
If you take the b-control pills as prescribed and do not skip or forget to take your pills, the probability of you getting pregnant is fairly low. If you find yourself to still be quite worried about it, pick up a pregnancy test in your local pharmacy. Keep taking your b-control on schedule and you will very likely be just fine.
As long as you're taking your pills correctly, you have been protected after the first week. You have a less then 1% chance of getting pregnant. Don't even worry about if he ejaculates in you, since its not a case of he may leave sperm, he WILL leave sperm before ejaculation, and there is no need when you're on the pill.
Birth control works by stopping a woman from ovulating. If there is no egg to fertilize, there will be no pregnancy no matter how much sperm is present. Once you are on the active pills for at least seven consecutive days, you are protected against getting pregnant because enough hormone from the pill is in the body to prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg. The brown pills are inactive reminder pills to remind you to take a pill every day. There is no active hormone in these pills, this allows "withdrawal bleeding" or your "period" Since no egg was released, you cannot become pregnant while on the inactive pills either. Birth control pills when taken perfectly, meaning one pill a day at the same time of day, are about 99 to 99.9% effective. Normal average use, meaning forgetting on occasion or taking them at random times drops the rate to about 97-99% effective.
