What is the effective duration of birth control pills ?

My Last pack of Novelon tablet ( birth control pill of 21 tabs ) ended on 13th September 2011 and as per instruction on the 8th day again I am supposed to start ( i.e on 21st September 2011)and i had all tablets regularly without a miss and i did not vomit of suffer from loose motion but on 16th and 17th of September 2011 i had intercourse without precaution , so is there a chance to get pregnant by any means.

hi urbashi,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
since you have taken the pills properly without any miss there is no need to worry about the pregnancy
you may have some side effects like abdominal pain due to the pill.
but you are on safe side
take care

hi,thanks for query,.Once you have taken a full pack medicine in the previous month then there is no need to worry,this medicines are effective once taken more then one month.Again you had sex in the beginning of cycle,that is not a fertile period so there is no need to worry.

wishing you good health.
