I have tried looking for an answer to this but I click every link and it gives me a 404 error, but today I was being silly after I took my pill- as in right after I put it in my mouth and swallowed I made a hissing noise and made a face. I am a very anxious person so I started thinking maybe it came out of my mouth, which is unlikely since I swallowed it already.
But my anxiety was driving me mad and I'm seeing my boyfriend in 3 day so I want to be safe. I am on the 12th day of my pill-pack, so my anxious self took an extra pill. I want to know if this will have any negative consequences in the effectiveness? I have taken my pill up to now at the same time everyday without missing. Except the first day of my new pack I was at a concert and was too scared to take my pill there so I started one day later which meant taking two pills the same day.

So I want to know if now 12 days into my pill pack will there be any negative consequence to the effectiveness? Thank you!

Welcome to the ehealth forum.

Although, occasionally the precum may contain sperms but it’s not that common. Moreover, without a penetration, the chances of the precum reaching the uterus and thus leading to pregnancy are minimal. Thus, theoretically speaking there is a small chance of you getting pregnant but practically the chances are almost negligible and moreover you had taken the post coital pills.

Post coital pills may cause breakthrough bleeding but it is not there in all people.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
