... sex that Friday morning ( I say Friday morning cause it was like 3am), not to mention he ejaculated in me. So that is a total 5 days of taking the pill. I've timed myself to take it every morning at 9:00am.. So I will take it today (in a couple of hours)... I know this may sound like a stupid question but can taking it so close to the time I've had sex help prevent me from getting pregnant?? I have been taking it every day at the same time since I have started & read that it takes 7 days for Sprintec to properly work and be effective.. How bad is my risk of getting pregnant since I'm 2 days shy from the 7 day mark?? Also, will taking the morning after pill help to prevent me from not getting pregnant though I'm on birth control? Is it okay to do that... I know I have a lot of questions, I just need to know and am freaking out because this is the first time he's ever ejaculated in me. I can't be pregnant, it's the whole reason I Got on birth control.. . Granted I know it was stupid to have unprotected sex so soon. Please someone help me out
You are supposed to start them the sunday after your period BEGINS. You should have waited 7 days to have unprotected sex. Birth control pills don't work like I took my pill today so I'm safe. They work on your cycle all month. They prevent ovulation. Taking your pill on time is good but it won't boost your safety to take it after sex. Feel free to ask questions, before you do something you shouldn't. Asking your friends usually isn't really helpful because they don't know either. When you take your pills correctly you are more then 99% protected. Having unprotected sex early isn't protected sorry.
