I worry a lot.

I was two hours late on the first pill of my pack (Sunday) and have been on time for the following ones.

I had unprotected sex on the 4th (Tuesday); he did not come inside of me.

This isn't the first time we've done this-we go through phases of using condoms and not using condoms, but other than that two hour slip on Sunday, I take my pills the same time every day and have since October.

Pregnancy risks? Am I worrying about nothing? (We are up to date on screenings, so no worries there)

You always have a three hours window for your pill, so having taken your pill two hours late doesn't really change things.

I wouldn't really worry about the pregnancy thing since your pill is really likely to be effective.

Just FYI, just know that this doesn't mean you won't get pregnant. You can if any semen went in contact with your vulva or your vagina.

If you really want to make sure you're not pregnant (it is really really unlikely), you can take a pregnancy test 10 to 14 days after your risk (after having had sex).

Sounds like you're all clear to me.

Women often wait until the first pill in their next pack if they want to change the time they take their pill by an hour or so.

The general rule with any type of pill is that you're safe if you take it within three hours of your regular time, either before or after.

Since you've been taking your pills regularly for a few months now, and resumed your normal schedule, seems like you have no reason to worry. [Smile]

{Edit} Whoops, looks like cool87 got here before me.
