If I am two weeks into birth control and have had unprotected sex, should I take the morning after pill? What would it do for me?
Wouldn't hurt: It depends when you started your birth control pills. If you started birth control for the 1st time ever 2 weeks ago and you started the 3-5th day of your period, then you probably don't need to use the morning after. If you have been on the pill for many cycles, then definitely no need otherwise, it wouldn't hurt to take the morning after pill. Actually it never hurts. It might just be overkill. ...Read more

If my gf has been on birth control, regularly. And has been for over 4 months. And we know her menstral cycle. Plus the next morning, take the morning after pill, is it at all safe to not use a condom and ejaculate inside of her?

If you want safe sex and extra protection then use condom. Talk w/ your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
