Im sorry to say its me again..thank you guys so much for even just listening. I have been to the doctor and have discussed some of my irrational fears about pregnancy with her.
Last wednesday morning, i had sex with my boyfriend.My period had started the wednesday before that and ended around the sunday. In the middle of sex the condom rolled off but it did not come off fully. I had started the new pack of my pills (after my pill free week) on the saturday bit due to exam stress and all i mite not of taken them at exactly 2.00 pm everyday (like i usually do) but it would of been very close to that time.
when my boyfriend told me that the condom had rolled off (kinda rolled down to the top of his penis) he pulled out of me immediatly and he said that he didnt come. I will be honest with you guys i had a huge panic attack..i was shaking and scared..so i decided to go to the doc for plan b.
Wait for this...so i went and she said it was a good idea for me to take it and she said she had a dose of the morning after pill for patients in her drawer in the cases of emergencies..so she gave it to me. So I went home and took the tablet.. then i looked at the box and the bloody thing was out of date...i couldnt believe it. So i went to another doc of mine and he suggested that i take it again..so i did. So basically i took two doses of plan b within 4 hours of the having the sex...what are my chances of pregnancy?? Will my period be delayed big time coz I took the morning after pill twice? around 4 days after i took it i had a slight few drops of blood is this normal??
As usual i really appreciate any replies..thank you for listening.
I find it hard to even be with my boyfriend since this, i dont want to be intinate with him anymore..i feel its too risky and i cant take the stress and the worry of me becoming pregnant. Thanks for listening..hopefully you guys can put my mind at ease again.
regards

Honestly, I really don't see that there was even a need for EC here, and that even without it, that you would have been at all likely to become pregnant.

I'm not saying that to invalidate your concerns or worries, but just so that you know, that there was NOT likely a viable risk in the first place.

That stinks about the EC blunder, but yes, by all means, pregnancy should be a non-concern now. per your withdrawal bleeds, yes, they may be off for a little while, but since you're on the pill, likely not for very long, and they may not be at all.

It's always okay to have an experience that did or you felt presented a risk and figure that that risk doesn't make sex or a kind of sex worth it for you. Just do know that there are other forms of physical intimacy -- even just making out and snuggling -- you can still enjoy which don't pose you any physical risks, if this is putting a wedge in your relationship you don't like and you WANT physical intimacy.

I think you're going to be okay. [Smile]

But obviously, you want to avoid those panic attacks, so just be sure that a) you're really aware of what does and doesn't present real risks from here on out -- like the fact that if you're on the combination pill, taking it an hour or two or even half a day later doesn't change your effectiveness -- and b)you're only engaging in whatever sexual activity you really feel okay with, including whatever risks it may present.
