Okay so I had sex with my boyfriend and after we had finished he realized the condom broke. I've been on Errin the birth control pill for about 3 months now. And only time I got my period while on the pill was the first week I started taking it. Anyways I take errin somewhat irregularly. Like most days I take it at 4, but there are some days I take it around 2:30 and others when I forget until later so I take it around 8. I know that's bad. What is the risk of me getting pregnant? Should I go buy plan B and take that? Or just wait it out to see what happens?
Condom broke. On errin birth What's the risk of pregnancy?
Added 31 Oct 2013:
Oh and I took the birth control about 45 minutes before I had sex (so I took it at 3:15). So I took it a little earlier than I usually do. But the day before I didn't take it until 9:30.
No, no plan B. When you are on regular birth control and take it correctly, you have a tiny chance of pregnancy, like 1%. You are protected without a condom. The reason for the condom is for prevention of disease. You should be taking them closer to 24 hrs apart. There are apps for your phone to remind you. Plan B is totally unecessary and makes absolutely no sense, since with it you'd have a 20% chance of pregnancy under the best of circumstances. It can mess up your cycle too.
