Ok, let me preface this by saying I’ve been on birth control for 7 years. I have NEVER been the type of girl that thinks she’s pregnant…Never any false alarms or anything! I don’t think this is either…I’m just a little worried I guess!
I went through my pack normally and got to my placebo’s…Normally I don’t take my placebo’s I just start back up after my period is over. Well, my period finished Wednesday and I haven’t had a chance to get my birth control until today because I’ve been slammed. My FH and I had sex yesterday morning, and he pulled out. So that means technically I’ve gone like a week and 2 days without any coverage…do you think I’m ok? I’m obviously not ovulating currently, and he did pull out. I don’t know. It just makes me nervous because I’m normally SO careful about these kind of situations. Am I overreacting? Or do you think that’s enough time of being off the pill to get the job done?

I know it’s hard to do but you are just going to have to wait. Wait until the day your next period is due and take an HPT with your first morning urine so you get the most accuate results…the just to be sure if you still think you might be pregnant, wait a week and take one more.

Shit..you think it’s a good possibility?! My FH had basically talked me out of it…that it’d basically be like winning the megamillions, lol. I hope he’s right!

Some women do ovulate early in their cycle. If you don’t want to be pregnant, you could take the “morning after pill”.
Where I live you can get it from a pharmacist-you don’t need to see a doctor. I don’t know what the situation is like where you live.
You can also use your own BC pills for emergency contraception. These websites give you the information:
The Canadian Federation for Sexual Health (CFSH) Web site at http://www.cfsh.ca.
The sexualityandu Web site at http://www.sexualityandu.ca
The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada’s (SOGC) emergency contraception information online at http://www.sogc.org/health/contraception-emergency_e.asp.

Just continue taking your birth control pills as usual or double up one day (which is the same thing as the morning after pill). It would be very strange for you to get pregnant. Usually women on BC have to go an entire month w/o it to be able to get pregnant, at least. And like you said, it would also be very strange for you to be ovulating this early. You’re fine I’m sure.

You’re probably ok. He pulled out and it would be very unusual for you to ovulate this early.

I think it is really, really unlikely that you could be pregnant. I would use backup protection for the next week or so though. Look at the instructions for your particular bc and follow the instructions for when you are starting bc for the first time. Usually it says to use a backup for the first week. I think the same parameters apply in this situation.
