I started birth control about 2 weeks ago for my PCOS and my doctor started me on a treatment by taking birth control 3 times a day for 5 days and then decrease to 2 times a day for 5 days also and then 1 once day regularly, I had sex and my husband and he ejaculate in me, whats my risk of getting pregnant? (he mentioned i wasnt ovulating anyways but not tested on that)
You likely are but this regimen is not for birth control purposes. It is using the hormones to treat a condition. It takes seven days of active pills to be considered protected so you are probably protected at this point. Birth control pills will prevent ovulation and decrease the amount of uterine lining that builds up (this is what we shed as our "period") so it should help to regulate your cycle. Once you have taken seven consecutive days of active pills, you are protected from pregnancy. No birth control is 100% effective but birth control pills, when taken correctly, are about 98-99% effective.
