My doctor prescribed me Norethindrone because I am breast feeding my 2month old daughter. Well, I have been taking the pill for only 18days but I have taken it AT THE SAME TIME EVERYDAY (11:55-11:57AM) But me&my boyfriend had unprotected sex last night & I know for sure he went inside me. I'm just scared because I just had my first child & we're nor my body is ready. Hopefully someone will have advice.
Interestingly enough, I became pregnant within the first month of taking the pill after I had also had a miscarriage. Just throwing it out there. My doctor claims he told me to wait one full cycle on the pill. I know he told me 7 days but when I became pregnant again right away... good heavens!!! I had a miscarriage but didn't know I was pregnant again... I thought I was having one of my two-week long periods again except I didn't feel well. My ob/gyn told me to go the hospital and that's where I got the results of my bloodwork confirming my levels were alleviated but my doctor told me I was no longer pregnant. He said a woman is more fertile and ripe for pregnancy again following a birth or in my case miscarrying. After that, I always thought it to be safe to have unprotected sex after one full month on the pill. Medications change and I haven't been on the pill for some 20+ years. I'm just throwing this out there for you and to talk with your doctor if you have concerns. Maybe I was the oddball case but the pill isn't fail proof.
I made the decision to have a tubal ligation because I was an emotional wreck and my now ex-husband was less than supportive...
Be safe, be well and be informed... knowledge is a powerful tool to staying in touch and in tune with your best self. Congratulations on your little blessing... I hope you have many in your life.
