Since my bf has be declared STI free, and I've been taking my pill at the same time every day on the dot (with the exception of one time, but I'll get to that in a minute), we've been messing around a little bit without condoms. He wouldn't finish inside me or around my genitals, just to be safe, and we both really enjoy it. But this morning while we were having sex he came inside me. I was ok with it at the time, but now I'm getting worried. Like I said, I've been taking my pill at pretty much the exact same time every day. However, last Wednesday I forgot to take my pill, and ended up taking it immediately the next morning (I took my next pill on time later that day). My bf and I made sure to be careful for five days afterward.

My worry is how much of a pregnancy risk do I have? I've read so many stories of girls or women who were on BC for months and still ended up getting pregnant. Should I invest in EC, or will that conflict with my birth control? I'm so afraid I made a poor decision...

Given you take all your pills on time typically, having the late pill is not a huge deal. But to be on the safe side? May want to just use two methods so in case something like this does happen you won't be so worried later.

Thanks, I definitely will. Is there anything else I should immediately do, or is the chance of pregnancy low? Sorry, I'm more concerned with this situation rather than a future one at the moment, and I just want to be sure.

Risk would be low.
