I recently change my birth control pill from Gianvi to Loryna. I was taking Gianvi for three months already. Started the new pack on same day as the previous BC. I had unprotected sex on the fourth day into my new BC, is it possible I can get pregnant?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You are not protected during switchover of your birth control pills (especially if the hormonal content and dosage of the pills are not same). The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely if you were closer to ovulation time during sexual contact. Wait and watch for your withdrawal bleeding/periods. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation if you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if you miss your periods, or have abnormal periods, or if you develop any other new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. If pregnancy is suspected, or if pregnancy gets confirmed, stop the hormonal birth control use.
