I had sex about one week ago, and for part of the time we didn't use a condom. He didn't ovulate inside me. The next day i accidentally took my birth control pill 3 hours late, and i was wondering the chances of me being pregnant are from the pre-ovulation sperm.
I wouldn't press your luck and get so relaxed about timing that you regularly take one at 7am one day and the next one at 10 pm the following day or whatever, but as the posters said, you are doubtless doing just fine to take them within three hours of the same time each day. Not pregnant would be my vote too. (((Hugs))) and don't worry! Annie
you ladies were all very reassuring to 'turtles'. maybe you can help me.
can birth control pills work they're way back up your throat and come out your mouth? if I sneeze or cough after I take my bcp, can it come out of my mouth and make the bcp ineffective ?? what if I cried really hard within an hour of taking it!? I know it's a silly question, but its a (silly) fear I'm hoping you ladies can so kindly put to rest.
If you cough it back out, it won't be effective. So if this happens to you regularly, eat something after you take it.
Crying really hard won't cause a pill that has made it to your stomach to be ineffective. You will still be protected. (But I would also say that if you are regularly crying really hard, you need to look at your stress levels and make some decisions! :) )
