I am extremely worried that I could be pregnant.
It's been 4 days since it happened. And I have been on BC for a month and a week. But I took it an hour an 10mins late last night. I also read that one symptom is tender breasts. Mine are killing me!!

Please help! [Frown] Sorry for another topic.

One hour will not affect the effectiveness of the pill. You have a three hour time frame either way from your chosen pill-time where it is still considered "on-time."

Also, "symptoms" mean....nothing. Nada. The thing is that all the "pregnancy symptoms" are also the same symptoms as a literal book-full of other things. The only way to find out if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. This will be accurate 10-14 days after the risk, or on the first day of a missed period (also know that stressing can delay your period, too.)

Kittengoddess's advice in this post is just as relevant, so don't worry too much.

Yeah. I'm sorry for the "double post". Just going crazy with the thought. Again, thank you for the consolation. I will make sure that I am more protected next time to assure myself. Again, thank you for your help. :-)
