oookkkkk...
I have had a very stressful week.
Thursday i took my pill at my regular time-7:30ish am.

Friday, i managed to forget, and took it when i got home from work, between 11;30-12 pm (midnight)

Saturday i also forgot, and wasn;t able to get to it until 1pm


Today is the first day of my placebo week. I had sex tonight, around 8:30. he was in me, without a condom, for a few thrusts. then he put a condom on. However, he also happens to precum a lot.

i have a plan b in my room right now.

should i take it, due to my bad pill taking this past week?


i know, bad judgement on all of this on my part. it definitly won;t happen again.

I do not see a need for EC.

One late pill, if it compromises your effectiveness at all -- which it likely will not -- would not do so enough mathematically for the EC to really have any effect at all per adding extra effectiveness.

As in, it could make me miss my period this time, or possibly just push it back? a few times i've felt a little crampy, and i've had me mood swings and cravings, but other than that, i haven;t seen any blood, and i always start right when i'm supposed to. could it just be a wonky cycle, because of the stress and the ec? and if i were to take a pregnancy test, i would have to wait until at least 10 days after my last risk?

Yes, EC can definately cause some wonkiness with your cycle. And yes, you can take a pregnancy test 10 days after your risk.

Yes, it could (especially considering your being on the pill already and under a lot of stress)...because the impact of the hormones is not the same for everyone. So you may notice some lateness.
