I am on birthcontroll and am usually very diligent in taking them, on Tuesday and Wednesday I was delayed in taking my pill. I had sex on Thursday with my boyfriend but the condom broke. My period should start in 5 days. Should I take plan B or trust my birth control and wait for my period?
That depends on whether the delay fell within the guidelines of your regular birth control, & whether or not you followed the instructions for what to do if you were late.
If you did, then you don't need to worry. If you didn't, then you'll need a form of emergency contraception.
