Hi. My boyfriend and I had sex and the condom broke. I am on Ginette 35 (the 28 tablets) for almost a year now and I took the "morning after"-pill about an hour after the sex. Is it possible that I could get pregnant? Please it's urgent.
Why did you take the morning after pill. Its not magic its less effective then your birth control pill. You've now almost guaranteed your cycle is going to be screwed up. You don't need a condom when you're on the pill so what if you use one and it broke. It wasn't possible you'd get pregnant, with no other birth control then your pill. I don't understand you girls, why do you do this to yourself. The regular birth control pills are more then 99% effective.
Why oh why would you take emergency contraception if you have been on birth control pills for a year??? What, exactly, do you think that pill is for??? You dont need condoms, other than for STD protection, while you are on the Pill unless you miss pills. If you were taking your pills correctly, condoms are a choice for preventing STDs NOT for contraception. Your birth control pill is all the contraceptive you need. If the condom breaks, it is no big deal as long as he doesnt have herpes or is HIV positive! You certainly didnt need to take emergency contraceptive either! That is just going to mess up your cycle with a blast of hormones you dont even need. Birth control pills like Ginette 35 stop ovulation when you take them correctly! If you do not ovulate, you cannot get pregnant. Ovulation is the release of an egg cell from your ovaries. No egg cell=no baby, no matter how much sperm you are exposed to, you cant get pregnant if there is no egg cell! Plan b and other emergency contraceptives or "morning after pills" DELAY ovulation for a few days. Now tell me why you need to DELAY ovulation if you do NOT ovulate??? Your regular birth control is quite effective, much more effective than emergency contraception. Ginette 35 is 98-99.9% effective. Plan b and other emergency contraceptives are 80-95% effective in a woman not using birth control. It is completely unnecessary in women who take birth control pills! Eye-yi-yi!
