Is it safe to take birth control Zenchent?

Im taking birth control Zenchent I took the white pills that are for you to start your menstrual on 2/19/12 - 2/24/12, and had my reg cycle, but after that I missed a week could I be pregnant if I had sex through the last time I took my last pill till the time I missed taking them?

Hello,

Once you start missing the doses, the efficacy decreases. Since you missed taking the BC for almost a week. You can be pregnant if you had unprotected sex & did not take emergency CP within 72 hrs of unprotected sexual intercourse.

If you are having delayed periods you are suggested to see a gynae & get clinically examined.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K, General & Family Physician
