Taking Lutera, condom broke while having sex. How do I continue with my pack?

I have been taking Lutera for about 2 weeks, and 2 days ago I had sex. The condom broke, so the next morning I took 5 Lutera followed by another 5 pills 12 hours later (I was informed that this was the same as taking a Plan B pill). How do I continue with my pack? If I wouldnt have taken the 10 pills, I would have had 2 and half more weeks of white pills before the nonhormonal pink pills. Now, I only have 5 days until I take the nonhormonal pills. What do I do?

Hello and welcome,

Please do not worry.
If you were already on lutera and taken pills regularly there was no need to use the condom. Even if it broke there was no need for an emergency contraception as you were already on regular contraception.

Now since these additional pills have been consumed, it is best to wait for periods and take no pills further. Meanwhile use condoms if there is a sexual contact. Begin a fresh pack of pills from day 1 of the next period and nothing else needs to be done.

So do not worry, just wait for your period and then begin a new pack.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
