Hello everybody, I already finished my first pack of yasmin and recently ended my week off from the pill. I was suppose to start the new package on sunday 03/17 however I started it until monday 03/18/ and had unprotected sex on tuesday 03/19... so I would like to know if Im taking a big risk on getting pregnant or is the pill going to help me avoid a pregnancy. As well... today (wednesday 03/20 at around 1:00 am) I took the pill I was suppose to take on sunday... but the time that I usually take my pills is at 9:45 pm. So Im afraid I mess this up :S please help me out!!!
I'd say you goofed. Use a condom for 7 days so you are sure you're protected. If you want to have the full effect of the pill you are going to have to be better at taking them. In the future, if you miss a pill, take it as soon as you realize it even if you have to take 2 at a time and use a condom for the next 7 days.
There are non latex condoms. They are pricier and some dont prevent STDs but they will prevent pregnancy. I would suggest that you look for these kinds of condoms, you can also use spemicides with these condoms. They are usually made of sheeps intestines or other materials like polyurethane or polyisoprene rather than latex.
