Hey scarleteen!
So I'm progesterine sensitive. I took depo and had weird side affects is how I know.

However recent events have me scared silly. So I was taking bactrim for an infection and about two days after I finished my antibiotic I had sex with a condom and I have been taking my birth control as normal the whole cycle. However the condom slipped off into me durring sex and we stopped (no ejaculation). Immediately we got plan b. so that was a week ago and I took my first placebo yesterday and no bleeding. I have had sharp pain in my abdominal region sometimes, my breast are tender and slightly fuller. I'm just freaking out and need some consolation. Do I have a pregnancy risk? I took one of the clear blue early response test that test for up to a week before your missed period and it said not pregnant. I'm just freaking out and need some help to calm me down.

Hi MirrorMask,

So, whenever there's intercourse like this, there is a pregnancy risk. However, you combined your hormonal birth control with withdrawl, then added EC on top of that, which means your odds of pregnancy are really, really, really low.

EC can make your period irregular, so that's likely what's happening now. If you took the test correctly, you can assume the results are correct. However, most tests require at least two weeks to pass from the incident, so you may want to double check the directions on the one you took to make sure you didn't test too early.

Ok thank you!!! That makes me feel a lot better. So the EC should have made up for any compromise to my normal pill from the antibiotic correct?

You're welcome [Smile]
When it's taken within 24 hours of the risk, EC can be up to 98% effective. Which means it is almost (but not quite) effective as perfect use of the BC pill. But that's still quite a lot of protection, especially when you add in withdrawl
