I just had unprotected sex and I remember taking an amount of birth control pills to not get pregnant how much do I have to take

Oh, . Oh, my gosh. Don't have unprotected sex unless you want to get pregnant. I don't understand if you are explaining that you took a bunch of pills after intercourse so that you would not get pregnant or if you took it before hand. Birth control pills don't work by taking a handful of them at one time. If your doctor has prescribed you birthcontrol pills, normally there will be directions about to take them. If you took some birth control pills that were not prescribed for you - don't. There are different directions for taking different kind of birth control pills. The best advice i can give you is to use birth control pills that were prescribed for you and take them as ordered by your doctor.
I . I agree with dr. Fowler: the time to think about birth control is long before having sex. If you have access to oral contraceptives for use as a "morning after" pill, you certainly had access to take them as prescribed in advance. And condoms are cheap, readily available, and have the added advantage of protecting against sexually transmitted diseases. That said, using high doses of your regular oral contraceptive shortly after unprotected sex may reduce your chances of pregnancy after the fact. How many to take varies with the formulation of the pill itself. Here's a link to a web site that lists common oral contraceptives and their "emergency" doses: http://ec.Princeton.Edu/questions/dose.Html.

How regularly/on time do you need to take birth control pills to be able to have unprotected sex and not get pregnant?

Depends. Specific answer depends on: 1. What type of bcp you are on (progestin only pills are very unforgiving, and need to be taken around the exact time every day). 2. When you miss a bcp (missing the first pill of a new pack is worse than missing the last pill). Ideally, take your pill around the same time every day, but generally okay if take same day. Double up next day if miss a pill, use backup. Read more...

I just started a pack of birth control pills and I heard it takes 7 days to become effective. But I had unprotected sex on the 5th day. Can I be pregn?

Too soon to know. If you are within 72 hour of sex, you may wish to take plan B and continue your regular birth control pills. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. Read more...

I stopped taking birth control pills on oct 18, I got my period oct 21 till oct 25, had unprotected sex on oct 29. How soon could I get pregnant?

2-3 weeks. If you had unprotected sex on 10/29, you could become pregnant as late as 11/2. Thus a positive pregnancy test would occur about 10-14 days after 11/2. Assuming that you only had that one instance of unprotected sex. If you had additional unprotected sex after 10/29, then of course, that pushes the dates back farther. Hope that answers your question. Read more...
