Okay, before anyone says I am irresponsible, I know unprotected sex is not smart but I just need to know if there is a GREAT possibility that I may be pregnant. I have been taking birth control since last August and usually I am always on time and I always start a new pack exactly when I am suppose to. Last week on Monday, April 30, is when I was suppose to start a new pack after my period. I completely forgot to get one the week before and on Monday so when I got it on Tuesday, I took both Monday and Tuesday pills after school around 4pm (My normal time to take my pill is around 7am). And then I had forgot to take my pill AGAIN the next morning (Wednesday) so I took it after school (3:30). The next morning (Thursday), I remembered to take it and have been since, but on Friday my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he ejaculated in me twice. (I know. Im not the brightest crayola.) Its been four days since and Im kind of worried about being pregnant. I didnt think about it until today because the last two days Ive had more vaginal discharge than usual, as in I can notice it more than usual. I am still taking my pills and am kind of hoping that can prevent the continuation of any type of pregnacy. I shouldnt have an egg for sperm to even get to because the birth control makes the body think its pregnant, right? Am I safe? May I be pregnant?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have started with the pill pack late (more than 7 days gap between your last pill pack use) then chances of pregnancy can be possible if you miss taking active pills of new pill pack and not followed the missed-pill-protocol. If you miss 2 or more than 2 cative pills (or take them late by more than 2 hours) then chances of ovulation is possible (as your body will not have hormonal levels adequate to make it think you are pregnant). Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding that should occur when you finish with your pill pack. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Stop the use of hormonal contraceptive if pregnancy is suspected, or if pregnancy gets confirmed.
