Hello - just a question:

I'm on birth control pills. Been taking them "perfectly" if that's what it means to take them every day within 30 minutes of "pill time."

I haven't had sex in a long time, maybe six months. Just a week ago, I suddenly had a LOT of sex, unprotected so he came inside every time. It's been maybe 12 or 13 times to tonight.

I think I'm freaking myself out by feeling these bodily aches and cramps. I'm having constant, very mild lower abdomen cramping. I had an intense headache but only lasted for an entire day. Other than that though, nothing else. No aching breasts, no fatigue, no spotting.

My question is though, might a sudden 'influx' of sperm and a constant 'influx' of sperm maybe throw off the accurate protection of my birth control pills? It's almost like - no sex for a long time and suddenly all this ejaculate in my body... does it make a difference?

Thanks for answering my doubts and inquiries, always! [Smile]

Ejaculate does not make a single bit of difference to the effectiveness of the pill. If you're worried, though, backing up with condoms can be a huge stress relief (and has the bonus side effect of protection from STIs, which obviously isn't something the pill can do).
