hey, i’ve been on the birth control pill tri-sprintec for about 5 months now. well, last week i starts a new pack of pills since i recently just got off my cycle. i had sex the last day of my cycle but earlier that day i took my birth control 5 hours later usual. (i usually take it at 12:00 a.m but i took it at (5:48 a.m.) am i still protected or am i pregnant? i took all my pills before that at 12:00 and after that at 12:00 but i’m still worried from that one time.
Yes! Mini pills have a 3 hour time sensitivity window, but combination pills like yours have a longer one (about 24 hours). You’re fine, but for routine’s sake, take them at the same time.
