Sex 10 days after abortion, on day 7 of birth control pill had sex before 7th pill with condom/plan b to 24 hours after, chances of pregnancy?

Sex 10 days after abortion, on day 7 of birth control pill had sex before 7th pill with condom/plan b to 24 hours after, chances of pregnancy?

? pregnant: WOW!!! — Given that scenario and not knowing your menstrual information — there is a possibility — birth control pills take a full month of taking them to be effective so thus if you just started and are on day 7 when you had sex — they won't protect you. The condom and Plan B are your best protection at this point. A urine pregnancy test will be useless due to the recent pregnancy. ...Read more

After nearly 3 weeks of taking Seasonique birth control pill, will it effectively act as a conterceptive pill (ie. plan b) to stop the pregnancy?

After nearly 3 weeks of taking Seasonique birth control pill, will it effectively act as a conterceptive pill (ie. plan b) to stop the pregnancy?

Not the right use: Seasonique is a "birth control pill". It was never marketed to stop pregnancy neither is Plan B. Plan B is for "emergency contraception", which is still "prevention". If you think you are pregnant you can use a home pregnancy test but you should really see your family physician or gynecologist if you are not sure why your period is late. ...Read more

Sounds like you: Took Plan B four days after first episode of sexual intercourse. Plan B One-Step is up to 89 % effective when taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex. It continues to reduce the risk of pregnancy up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex, but is less effective as time passes. Why are you taking these risks? Recommend consistent use of birth control. ...Read more

On low does birth control pill boyfriend did not cum in me still took plan b could I still get pregnant with his pre-cum?

On low does birth control pill boyfriend did not cum in me still took plan b could I still get pregnant with his pre-cum?

Pregnant?: If you take low dose oral contraceptives, and you take them at the same hour or so that you took it the previous day, AND, you take only five (5) of the placebo (inactive) pills and then start another pack of low dose BCP's, the chances are near zero. If you are not regular in taking them (as above), the pre-ejaculate does contain sperm, and pregnancy is possible. ...Read more

Do I need to takes birth control pill, Minastron, if I took Plan B because I forgot to take Minastrin this morning?

Yes: If you forget your birth control pill, you should take it as soon as you remember it. However, if you don't remember to take it until time for the next one, you should not take two at once. You should just take the one and consider the missed one skipped. The trick to birth control is that it HAS TO BE taken at the same time every day. If not, you risk breakthrough bleeding and pregnancy. ...Read more

I miss 1 birth control pill in week 1 & the next day I took 2 pills, then in week 2 I miss a pill again & took 2 pills, do I need Plan B if I had sex?

I miss 1 birth control pill in week 1 & the next day I took 2 pills, then in week 2 I miss a pill again & took 2 pills, do I need Plan B if I had sex?

You might not have 2: But if you want to be extra cautious this would be a good thing to do. Forgetting two pills in a pack in theory makes enough of a drop in efficacy that you might want to have a back up plan. You could also use barrier methods (condoms) for the rest of this cycle as an added safety measure. ...Read more

I missed two days of my birth control pill I'm back on track now during this time I had unprotected sex should I get a Plan B? You

Did you double bc?: Did you take the pill you missed and the pill that was scheduled to be taken that day at the same time? If you did, the chances of conception are minimal as the oral contraceptive pill will "act" as emergency contraception. If not, then it may be too late to take Plan B if it wasn't taken within 48 hours of the unprotected sex, but it would be worth a try. ...Read more

I was on a low dose birth control pill and had sex onday 14 with no condom and boyfriend did not cum in me but still took plan b could I get pregnant?

About BC pills...: A woman who takes birth control (BC) pills correctly, and is beyond her first pack of pills, has contraception (protection against pregnancy) every day. That means she can have sex every day, and not get pregnant. It means she has NO fertile days, as long as she takes the pills correctly. (Of course, any woman of child-bearing age, having sex, CAN get pregnant... the possibility is always there.) ...Read more

Took Plan B a month ago, taking my birth control pill, period came on time, pain under right side of rib.vomiting, nausea. Could I be pregnant?

Probably not, but...: If worried, can test. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is usually presumed not pregnant. ...Read more

Unprotected?: Intercourse will ultimately lead to pregnancy. If this was a one time episode then Plan B should prevent pregnancy. Why not get on BC pills PLUS use condoms, spermicidal foam, jelly, sponge or vaginal eggs. When in doubt: do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Your risks are small: If you really want to be "safer" and reduce your risks of pregnancy with a most effective, long term and forgettable method, you may ask a gynecologist trained in insertion of IUD's in a young woman like you to offer you one. Otherwise, consider a subdermal implant and be safe. ...Read more
