Ok, I have been on birth control (orthotricyclen lo)constantly, with no breaks, for about 3 and a half years. I am really good about taking it at the same time every day, although I did take one about 5 hours late this cycle on january 6th) I started my period on December 21, and had sex on December 24, using no condom. I started my regualar pack of bc on december 25, and had sex on the 27 and january 1st, using no condom. Since then, i have had sex 3 or 4 times with a condom. Not one of these times did he even come close to ejaculating in me, although i know about the precum risks. I am due for my period on January 17th, and I was not worried about a risk, but lately when i eat in the morning, i get nauseous for the past three days and i even threw up yesterday. It is usually just in the morning, and I am fine until i eat. Would I be showing symptoms this early or could i just be stress from starting college again next week and moving back away from home? Please help. Any advice and reassurance is greatly apprecaited.

Well, the pill by itself is NOT 100% effective. But it's darn close, so your pregnancy risks would be conslidered extremely slight.

Might pregnancy symptoms start that early? They can: again, that's more uncommon, and it's more likely you've got a flu or it's nerves.

But at this point, you could absolutely take a pregnancy test to be sure (that would cover the risks up to around the 1st), and of course, you can henceforth backup with condoms for the extra protection and your peace of mind.

I keep telling myself that it is a virus, since a stomach virus happens to be going around in my small town, but the fact that it is just in the morning makes me really nervous. Thank you a lot for the reassurance and keep up the GREAT work! (just curious: when do symptoms usually show up?)

I just realized that I was sick at the end of the month of december, and I went to the doctor and took a shot on the 26th. I cant remeber what the shot was now, or even if it was an antibiotic. I had sex on the 27 and the 1st, with no condom, but taking my birth control regularly. He did not cum in me at all. I had only finished my period on the 27th, so soes this increase my pregnancy chance or am i just really dtressing over nothing? PLease help me.
