So I've got a silly question. I've been on Lo Loestrin for 4 months. I take my pills everyday at the same time (I use my cellphone for an alarm) Today I took my first of two iron pills. We had intercourse but we used correctly used a condom (like always). I also took Plan B because I was paranoid about the iron pill not having any hormones. I am also on the 5th day of my period. Could I become pregnant, considering all of the factors?
I know its possible to get pregnant anytime there is intercourse, but am I also protected when I take the iron pills? I've read that there is enough hormones built up when all of the previous pills have been taken correctly to be protected during the iron pill days.
No. The Plan B will however mess your next cycle or two up, causing out of sequence spotting and bleeding, and likely no bleeding when you expect to.
The pill protects you every minute of every day of every cycle, active or inactive. AS LONG AS YOU TAKE IT AS DIRECTED.
I think your confusion comes from this: "I know its possible to get pregnant anytime there is intercourse". This is not true. You can only get pregnant when you ovulate. The pill however stops you from ovulating altogether.
Unless you are in a long term relationship, it is wise to use the pill and a condom. Using the pill, a condom and Plan B is just an overreaction to a risk that does not exist.
I have a question i am on Lo Loestrin and this is my 3rd month on it ( i take the pill the same time every day) and i think i may be pregnant.. Last month i had my period a week before i was suppose to so i was wonder if it is possible that i could of gotten pregnant the week i was suppose to be on my period. My boobs are hurting, i have hug knots in them and a weird tingly feeling. I have taking a pregnancy test but it came back neg but, i think its to early to tell.. I have 2 kids and each time i got pregnant with them my boobs hurt and feel the same way they do now..
I have been taking loestrin for 2 years now. I take it everyday usually at the same time except the last few days I took it an hour later or a few hours earlier. I had unprotected sex today and took the birth control right after I was just wondering if that is a possibly to become pregnant?
