There’s always a chance I’m aware. I’m a regular birth control pill user of 3 years. Yesterday (July 4,Tuesday) I had sex. I’ve been taking my pill regularly for the last couple days give or take 30 minutes less or more than my intended time. Either way still everyday. He did not pull out. Instantly I took a Plan B as I figured it is an emergency and I had never had this happen before. I also took my Wednesday pill a bit late (12:30am ish today) I am just curious what are my chances now? I am hoping with the birth control and the Plan B I took that would eliminate any less likely chances. Thoughts? Thank you.
30 mins late is not enough to stop your regular birth control from protecting you against pregnancy, although no birth control is 100% effective.
As you've now added the huge dose of artificial hormone in Plan B, to the artificial hormone in your regular birth control pills, you may well find your menstrual cycle is unpredictable for weeks or months. You may also get hormonal side effects, as your body tries to deal with the chemicals.
Some women who use both of the above, end up without periods for months. Everyone is different, though, so it's just a case of waiting to see.
Regardless of what happens with your periods, you should continue with your regular pills as you would if your period came on time.
From the circumstances you've given, it's highly unlikely that you would become pregnant.
You may want to do a pregnancy test if/when your period should be due, to put your mind at rest. If it comes back positive, it can just be the Plan B giving a false-positive test result, so get it confirmed by a doctor's blood test.
You may want an STD test, as some of those can be carried without symptoms & even as a virgin.
