My partner and I had unprotected sex during my period (on 3rd/4th day). I'm to start using birth control pills for the first time on the 5th day. My period usually lasts 7 days.
Unfortunately I'm in a foreign country and pharmacies are closed till Monday which will be about 60hrs later when I can take plan b, and by then I'll be taking birth control pills.
Should I take plan B in combination with the birth control or should I simply go ahead with the birth control pills.
I am aware that what happened was irresponsible and unfortunate especially as I had already planned on being safe. Help and advice would be much appreciated.
Start your pills now. You don't have to wait until the 5th day. Did the dr tell you to start it on the 5th day of your period. Pills are started the first day of your period or the sunday after your period BEGINS. Which is today. The timing of the sex makes it so you probably haven't ovulated and you're safe, and start your pills so you are starting protection. You have to use a condom for the first 7 days of the pills.
