Since I have been raped and even before i was raped i never took my BC pill at the same time every day and once in a whilei will forget to take one. I am scared it may have an effect on me at all internaly or anything like pregnancy. I took a test at the hospital and it came back - all tho it was right after i was raped. I have not taken another test and i dont have any symptoms of being pregnant like gaining weight, cravinges etc. Should I be worried. I am sorry!

Hi There,

Taking your pill irregularly won't negatively affect your body in any way. Know too that the pill doesn't have to be taken at the exact same time each day in order to be effective, only at the same time of day.

Have you had your period since you were raped? After three months it is most likely that you would notice changes to your body if you were pregnant and it is encouraging that you haven't. , and certainly you would notice if your period (which is actually called a withdrawal bleed when you're on the pill) hadn't come. So, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. If you're concerned about this, you could ask for a pregnancy test at the doctor's office.

As you said, you are not experiencing any signs of pregnancy, which you would after three months.
