Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex when I was on week 2 on it I didn't take it on a Sunday they said I should I took as soon as my period finished BUT! He c** inside me ... Can I be pregnant ? And it was more then once
You were not supposed to wait until your period finished to start it. However, waiting until week 2 saved you. Never alter your pill schedule whether or not you're bleeding. The fact that you're taking them at different times isn't helping you, and it may have increased your chance of pregnancy slightly, but its still very slim. You've got to get into taking it at the same time every day. There are apps for your phone to remind you.
I dont know how many times I have to write this YOU DO NOT OVULATE WHILE YOU ARE ON THE PILL!!! This is how they work! They STOP ovulation!! For the best rate of protection, you should take them at the same time of day, or at least within an hour each way of the chosen time. If you pick 8pm as "the time" then anywhere from 7pm to 9pm is "on time" Taking it at erratic times but still taking it daily does increase your risk some but it is still better than not using them or using Plan b or one of those. You are supposed to start the pill for the first time either on your first day of your period or the first Sunday after your period starts. Are you sure they told you to use it when you finished your period-perhaps you heard it wrong or misunderstood? The day you start in relation to your period only matters on the very FIRST pack. After that you just take one pill a day as they come in the pack and go from one pack to another never altering that no matter what your body does, bleeding or no bleeding. If you waited at least seven days after you started your very first pack to have unprotected sex hen you are protected from pregnancy. You will just be better protected if you take them around the same time of day. Set an alarm on your cell phone and keep the Pills in your purse so that you always have them near you and take it as soon as the alarm goes off so you dont forget. You do that and you will have a less than one percent chance for pregnancy. The way you are doing it now is more like 90% protected so there is more margin for failure.
