I'm looking for help to figure out if I should get EC. I'm on Yasmin, but have been taking it somewhat irregularly. Last night I had oral sex with a guy. A while later, he became hard again, and there was genital-genital contact. No insertion (or perhaps the *smallest* bit), but definite contact.
1) is this EC worthy?
2) if so, is it possible to take 4 of my pills now and four in 12 hours, like you can with some types of pill. and if i do that, how do i get back on schedule?

I hope this made sense, and had all the facts you need. Thanks!

Pregnancy is unlikely if you've been taking your pills correctly -- this means around the same time every day. Unless you've been consistently very late (say, taking it at dinner instead of breakfast per usual) or have missed more than 1 pill in a row, you're protected from pregnancy.
