Is there a possibility of being pregnant if I have sex during the morning before taking the pill?

Hi, I'm concern about getting pregnant, the reason is that I usually take my Loestrin 24 Fe pill at 9:00 am but today I had sex with my husband around 7:36 am and I want to know how risky is that, since at that time I haven't take yet the pill.
I took my Loestrin 24 Fe pill right after because of my concern but I'm needing orientation about it.
Please give me any information!
How long have you been taking Loestrin? I am pretty confident that you are not pregnant if you take your pill every day. If you missed a few pills, that would be worrisome, but you didn't, so I think you are safe.
If you are bothered about this, take a pregnancy test.
If you have been on the pill for more than seven days you will be protected. It doesnt work like you are thinking. You do have to take a pill everyday but having unprotected sex prior to taking the days pill will not get you pregnant. Some women take their pills in the evening or afternoon. The pills change your hormones in such a way that they prevent eggs from maturing and change the lining of the uterus so it is less fit to receive a fertilized egg. This is why many women find their periods are much lighter on the pill. Missing pills can increase the risk of an egg being released and the more days you miss, the liklihood of pregnancy increases. It is best to take a pill at the same time each day to prevent swings and shifts in hormones but missing your time by hours wont cause you to become pregnant as long as you take a pill each day. Really, the chances are low for becoming pregnant by missing one day, but that doesnt mean you should miss days because there still is a chance and some women are very fertile!So put your mind at ease and enjoy the benefits of birth control! Birth control is supposed the help you to enjoy your sex life without having to worry so much about getting pregnant! Just be sure to take your pill each day and that is the only worry you have!
