I've been on minastrin for just over a month and I hated chewing the pills and I did some research and found it was okay to swallow them whole. Hope this was right. Well, I saw my long distance boyfriend for a week and got careless about the time difference and took my pills two-three hours/early late every night I was there. We had unprotected sex several times and now I am worried I could be pregnant. Please help?
With the lo dose pills its even more important that you take them at the same time every day. The hormone doesn't stay in your body more then 24 hours. Where did you find it was ok to just swallow them? The manufacturer doesn't say that.
All you can do is wait for your period. If you don't get it and its a week later, then you can do a pregnancy test.
