Today my boyfriend and I had sex; he was wearing a condom and I am on Birth Control. But the condom (we found out after) broke inside me and he came in me. I peed after, and I also washed out with warm water.. I took my last active pill last night at normal time (9pm).. I start my inactive one tonight... Should I go get Plan B tomorrow at the pharmacy? (They are closed now).. Also what other things should I do? Worried. Also how does Plan B and Birth Control work together? Or will it not matter since i will be on my inactive pills?

If you have been taking your pills correctly, there really is no need for Plan B.

Your pills are much more effective than Plan B, so taking Plan B tomorrow will not give you any significant additional pregnancy protection.

If you take Plan B while on birth control pills, you may be more likely to experience side effects, so taking it may just make you feel bad without helping anything.

Yes, your pill works for your entire cycle, even during the placebo week.

I am on TriNessa Birth Control... what you said goes with this correct? I usually start my period tuesday of the inactive pills, but so far it hasn't started.. It may come later tonight like last month, but I am just making sure. I have been on this for about 4 months.. Should my body be adjusted by now?

Your body is probably adjusted, but understand that even when you're on the pill, your withdrawal bleed won't necessarily show up at exactly the same time. A little bit of variation is normal, just as it would be if you were not on any sort of hormonal birth control.

(And yes, no matter what type of pill you take, you are still protected throughout the whole cycle, including the week of inactive pills.)

quick question.. does Alcohol affect birth control?


Also what other reasons would there be for a late period?

Tuuli, alcohol in itself doesn't decrease the efficacy of birth control pills, unless it causes you to forget to take it!

Reasons for a late period are typically stress, changes in exercise, different diets, or in the amount of sleep you get. Of course, not every period or withdrawal bleed looks the same, either-- sometimes you get an off-month where the flow comes at a later time than expected no matter what the conditions.

Ok, i always take the pill before i plan to have a drink or two, so there is no worrying about forgetting! lol

Hopefully it is all stress related one of the mentioned above.

ohh the woman body is so mean to make us worry so much.... hrm. [Roll Eyes]
