I am about halfway through my 5th pack of low dose combined oral contraceptives. I take them within a 3-4 hour window every day and have not missed a pill. I am having ovulation pain in my right ovary. Had sex without a condom twice within the past week and my SO also withdrew before ejaculating. If by chance I did ovulate, will the other mechanisms of the pill protect me from pregnancy?
You aren't taking your pill perfectly. You don't have a 3-4 hr window to take it, its supposed to be the same time every day. With the lo dose pills this is even more important. There is little to no hormone left in 24 hrs and you need to be taking it on time. The other things it does may help, but the withdrawal does nothing.
