This is my first time ever taking birth control after having my first child, condoms are really irritating to me so me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex. Is that okay or should I be worried because I really don't want to have another kid just yet.
It takes quite a while before your hormones level out making it even possible to have another child. If your breast feeding, this will also alter your hormones in a way that will make having another child impossible during the duration of this. With that said, we do have a friend that has two kids that are only one year apart. So, needless to say it is very easy to get pregnant after a month or so when not breast feeding. With only one week of taking necon, it as a sole provider of protection is risky. There are so many variables regarding this that it is hard to say. My wife and I discussed this all in detail after having our first, and then again after our second (easy to forget the details). In the end we decided that getting the "snip" for me was ultimately the best route for us, as we only want two kids. I know that this most likely is not a good option for you two, but felt that I should at least share our end decision as well as where and why I know what I do. So, basically, this info is from a doctor who told my wife, who then told me (three years ago), and now I'm relaying this all to you. This is what I know, however you might want to do a bit of research on your own as well. I hope that this has been of some help! Sincerely,
Are you taking the Necon 1/35 now??
If you are taking Necon then it depends on when you first started the pills. If you started Necon on the first day of your period (day 1 of your cycle) then you will be protected from pregnancy.
If you started at any other time you need to wait for 7 days until you have full contraceptive cover.
If the latter applies to you and you really don't want another kid then you should see your doctor or pharmacist for emergency contraception (eg. Plan B) ASAP! All the best.
