hi me and my bf just had sex and the condom broke and he blew it in me. i've been on the pill for 3 years, and the next morning i was responsible and went to my doctor and got the EC pill. what are my chances of being pregnant? and could those EC pills make my period a little late? im supposed to start my period in a couple of days.

If you've been taking the pill consistently and correctly, then your risk of pregnancy is very low anyway - in fact, some people would say the EC was unnecessary. Given that you took the EC, that pushes your risk down to almost nothing.

EC can make your next period arrive either early or late. But it won't affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test (if your period doesn't turn up on time and you're worried and want to double-check).

And you and your boyfriend will be keeping your STD screening up-to-date, right?
