... because I had unprotected sex. I didn't just have unprotected sex but he also came inside of me. I'm on my inactive pills (brown pills) and have not got my period yet. Should I be concerned?
As long as you took all of the active pills without a miss then you are protected from pregnancy even during the inactive pills. You are not protected against STDs so you still need to be concerned about that. After you have completed a cycle of active pills, condoms are for protecting you against STDs not for contraception. Your pill is your contraception. Pills do take at least a week to work so if you had sex without a condom back up before you took at least seven days of pills then you may need to be concerned. Many health professionals prefer you use back up for at least one cycle but the manufacturer says you are protected after seven days. Withdrawal before ejaculation does absolutely NOTHING to protect you against pregnancy as sperm are secreted all throughout the sex act so the fact that he ejaculated in non consequential. If you used back up or abstained for at least the first week you began birth control pills and you took a pill every day without a miss, you have no worries regarding pregnancy. As far as being infected with an STD-that is a possiblity.
Birth Control pills work 3 ways. They prevent ovulation. They decrease the lining of the uterus, and they thicken the mucous at the cervix.
This means that if you take your pill every day at roughly the same time, you will not get pregnant. There are some medications that decrease the ability of the pill to work. One of them is antibiotics, so that if you’re on them you should use a backup method of birth control.
You will not get pregnant when you are on the inactive pills. YOU DO NOT OVULATE WHEN ON THE PILL.
You may have a very light or even no period from time to time because of the decrease in uterine lining.
You do not ever need to take plan B. The only reason for condoms when on the pills is to prevent STDS.
If you forget a pill your chances of getting pregnant increase slightly. The more pills your forget, the more your chance of pregnancy.
When first starting the pill you need to use back up birth control for at least the first week. After you start the pill, when you have your period has nothing to do with taking the pill. You just keep taking them one pack after the other. You do not stop them if you start spotting, you do not stop them if you don’t have a period, bleeding has nothing at all to do with when you take your pills, once you’ve started them.
Pulling out is NOT method of birth control anyway, so stop worrying about that.
