If the pack contains 28 pills, the last seven pills are inactive (do not contain hormones). These inactive pills can't help you to prevent pregnancy. If the pack contains 21 pills, then the last 7 pills are active and they may help you. If you got your period after you had taken those pills, then the pills were active.


For emergency contraception (after sex) you may use an original pack that contains 4 active pills. First, 2 pills have to be taken in the first 72 hours after sex. Then, the second 2 pills have to be taken 12 hours after the first 2. After few days, you should get a period if you follow this protocl. You may also use active pills from the normal birth control packs but you will have to consult a gynecologist first for proper dosage. Remember!... emergency contraception is efficient only in the first 72 hour after sex!!!


In your case (he did not ejaculate), the chances of getting pregnant are small... but possible. If you don’t get pregnant, it won’t be because you've taken 7 inactive pills.
