Pregnancy

if you have sex at 10 in the morning and take your birth control at 8pm that same day, will the birth control still work or would you get pregnant because you didnt take it right after you had sex?

  • Uh.. you need to be taking it every single day at the same time every single day.

    Not taking it til the evening shouldn't matter if you've been using it properly to begin with. You are not protected from pregnancy from taking one single pill for the first time.

  • I have been taking it the same time every day for 3 months

    And only have sex right after you take the pill?
    What's that time window look like?
    One hour after the pill and youre safe? But dont risk it 8 hours after the pill?

  • Dear lord.....



    Please don't have sex anymore until you understand how the body works and how birth control works..

  • Sigh....
    Are you under the assumption that the pill you take that day is protecting you just for THAT day??
    You're just keeping your hormone level steady by taking it at the same day,every day
    The pill doesn't wear off the closer you get to your dosage time.....

  • Seriously? Birth control is an ongoing thing, you know. You have to take the pill roughly at the same time every single day.
