Hey there--I'll get right to the point. I've experienced PCOS-like symptoms in the past year, so my gyno recently put me on Yasmin. (My hormone levels were found to be normal.) I did not use either of the traditional start methods ("first day" or "Sunday start") because I haven't experienced a natural period in about a year. I've only been on Yasmin for a week and a day. The condom broke tonight and my boyfriend (long-term, monogamous, tested) ejaculated in the meantime. I do have access to EC; should I take it, and continue with my pill as directed, or should I simply keep taking Yasmin on schedule? I'm worried primarily because of my "nontraditional" start day and because ST recommends a month of regular pill use before unprotected sex (and, rightly, doesn't advise unprotected sex at all )

Thanks so much for your help.
