Question: Hi I had intercourse on Sunday morning now I am on the pill and take it all the time but the protection we wer using broke and I took my pill when I came home. I'm worried I could get pregnant even though I am on birth control. Should I get the morning after pill or no?

Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
If you are taking your birth control pills regularly and consistently, then there is no chance of pregnancy by unprotected intercourse.
You need not take any emergency contraceptive pill for that.
There is nothing to worry.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.

Hi, I m on birth control and I had unprotected sex two days ago. I have missed one (two at the most) days, but remembered immediately and took it. The pill I am on allows you to do this and take your next pill as you normally would without having to use backup birth control. I am now having a brown discharge and would like to know what you think this means and if I should take the morning after pill. Thanks.
