HELP I AM VERY CONFUSED
i was on bc for several months, but ran out of my prescription and it took me awhile to get back into the doctor to get it refilled. I just restarted 5 days ago and last night by bf and I had unprotected sex. I am worried that since I have only been on it for 5 days, the bc will not protect me to the full extent. I want to go get Plan B to be safe. My question is, can I take Plan B and my bc at the same time? No one has really been able to give me a straight answer and I am very confused!

THANKS

You absolutely can take them at the same time.

And for sure, if you had been off the pill for more than seven days and then restarted, but had only been using it for five, I'd suggest it.

For future reference, btw, when you're not sure if you can take one medication with another, your pharmacist is the person to ask. It's part of their job to keep track of what they prescribe you and double-check for any meds that shouldn't be taken together.
