I had a period which began on 13th Dec 2011 and I started the 21-Yazmin pill(2nd pack) on the fourth day(16th Dec 2011) of my period.
I have taken the pill for 12 days then stop(28 Dec)since my boyfriend and I broke up.
2 days later(30 Dec), I got my period again and the I started the pill on the fifth day of my period(3 Jan).(Please note that I got my period twice in the same month two weeks apart.)
Because I thought I might be ovulating, I stop the pill again on (6 Jan) and decided to start when my period come again.I start to bleed on the 11 Jan and then start the pill on the 15 Jan.
I am on the pill at the moment,a month sex free, breast tender, adominal cramps and negative for being pregant.
With Valentine on it way, do you think I will be okay to have unprotected sex on that day once I start the pill on time from now on or did I cause my system to go out of wack and my possiblities of me getting pregnant is greater because of this?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Since you have not been regular in taking your birth control pills, you might not have the effective protection if you start with next pill pack after periods. Wait for your periods/withdrawal bleeding. Start the next pill pack at scheduled time as instructed. Be regular in taking the birth control pills at scheduled time daily. The pills will start giving you effective protection after about 2-3 weeks. If you are worried about pregnancy, always use back-up protection if having intercourse to have additional protection. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
