Hi, so I had sex on Sunday which was the last day of my period so I started my new cycle of pills that day. I happened to take my pill 3 hours after my time and I'm almost positive that he came inside me. I'm wondering if I should go and purchase plan b tomorrow to see if that can help. Any thoughts on what I should do or if i continue to take my birth control pills on time will I be okay?
You will be covered by your regular birth control & do not need emergency precautions.
The previous advice was incorrect, in that Plan B does not interfere with birth control. Only Ulipristal Acetate, another emergency contraceptive pill, does that.
They also advised that you're covered 100% of the time on your birth control. No contraception is 100% effective. I expect what they meant was that there are no days in your cycle where you are not getting continuous cover from your regular birth control, even when you are on your placebo week (you are not fertile during your period anyway).
