I slipped up. I take my pills faithfully. I just had my doc switch me to a higher dose of bc pill. I started them on nov 8th. That night he finished in me. Scared i took plan b 9 hours later. Well i just found out i am pregnant. How did that happen thought for sure i was safe. Been on the pill for 5 years now.
Neither birth control nor emergency birth control are 100% guaranteed, so if you waited the required time to be covered, & didn't have sickness or diarrhea soon after using them, & weren't on other medications that interfere with them, then it looks as though you have been one of the people it just didn't work for, unless there's a chance you were pregnant before the 8th. Perhaps you were ovulating & the Pill was too late to stop it or protect you in other ways.
Have you had advice about your options & future support?
