Ok, I am currently switching over from NuvaRing to Quasense (the generic form of Seasonel). I started taking the new pill on the same day I would ordinarily insert my new ring. Whenever I've switched birth control methods in the past, I was told they would be effective starting immediately if I took them in this way, so I had sex with my boyfriend without thinking about it. He did not ejaculate in my vagina, but did insert himself right after ejaculating, so there was some exposure. This morning I was reading the more detailed information on Quasense, and it said that I should use a back-up method for the first week of taking the new BC-- which I did not do. Do I need to get myself some emergency contraception?
