I recently had unprotected sex and the next day starting taking birth control. Without me knowing I couldn't have sex the first week on the pill, I had sex another two times and yes both times were unprotected also. After all this I am now 10 days overdue for my next period. I'm not sure if this is because I'm pregnant or because of my birth control ??? The only time I messed up with taking my pills was when I took my pill at 1:00am instead of 9:15pm. I don't know what to do!! Someone please help !!
hiya Astoria i am confused by you not known you couldnt have sex the first week on the pill and saying later on the only time you messed up was between 1 am instead of 09 15?. I was told by my doctor the first 7 days you should use another form of protection as you are not covered so yes theres a possibilty you are pregnant. I also wouldnt worry though been 10 days overdue doesnt mean you are pregnant because everyones body reacts different to the pill with the times of the pill i no i was told as long as its took within the 12 hours you are still protected. I hope this helps u could also go out and buy a pregnancy kit or see ur doctor. Wish u luck xx
All these pregnancy questions, but they all have one thing in common. None of you read the instructions. What pill are you on? What are you basing that you're 10 days late, hopefully not your previous menstrual cycle? Where are you on the pack of pills. I need to know these things to advise you correctly.
This answer may come a little late but, one of the ways the pill works is by preventing ovulation. So if used correctly, no matter when you used to get your period, you will not have your period as long as you are taking the active pills (because they prevent ovulation and override your body's normal hormonal signals that tell your body to menstruate). Your period will now come during the 4th week of pills (the sugar pills); usually 3-4 days in. So no you would not have gotten your period on the 25th of May.
However, because you didn't use backup methods of protection for the first week, you might want to take a pregnancy test if your period doesn't come after your sugar pill week. Depending on when you started taking the pill, you may have already ovulated prior to starting the pill and could have become pregnant. The pills also works by preventing attachment of a fertilized egg to your uterus etc, but it's essential that your body has that 1 week to adjust to the additional hormones you are taking in order for them to be effective.
I'm sure you probably know by now, if whether or not you're pregnant and I hope everything worked out the way you wanted it to. Cheers
