I just recentally started using a generic birth control pill the day after my period four days ago. While having sex our condom broke and I am one hundred percent sure I got all of the semen inside of me. In order to prevent pregnancy I feel like I should use a emergency contricption. Is this healthy? Will there be any serious side effects? And most importantly how can I be sure it works before my next period? Thanks for the awnsers can not afford to see a obgyn at the moment.
You're not protected by the pill yet. So you probably need plan B. There is no way to tell if it worked before your next period. and it will make your period late. Take your bc pills no matter what happens now, because plan b can cause bleeding when you don't expect it. You should not stop your pills to allow more when that happens.
