  • Honestly? I'd take 2 of the bc pills you have & take em religiously from today on.

  • start them today, read the instructions, doubling isn't going to do anything for you and does not work as plan B in that way. Just start now. and if you really don't want to get pregnant and want to save money the Depo Shot is every 3 months

  • If the last day of your period was on Thursday, I'd say it's pretty doubtful that you would have gotten pregnant. Do you know when in your cycle you ovulate?

  • no i started thursday not sure i just have a period every 28-29 days

  • My two cents is that a the depo shot does horrible things to your body. I should know I'm just coming off of it and having a horrible time trying to conceive. But if you are worried about the cost planned parenthood has ways to help those couples who have trouble affording birth control. An as a woman that survived some oops in high-school when a condom broke I'll tell you that you should be fine, but if you are really concerned take to your doctor and listen to your heart you'll know if you are pregnant before anyone else. An further more one you start bleeding its extremely hard to get pregnant , I know we (my and my fiance) tried. So fear not and wait and see.

    I hope this helps you a bit if not I'm sorry.

  • I wouldn't freak out just yet.... it seems your freaking yourself out over a 50/50 chance. At this point it sounds like you can't afford the other alternative sooo you will just have to wait and see... Continue to take the BC pills as directed, maybe in another month get a pregnancy test and test yourself. I suggest that also use a spermiside with the condoms.

  • If you had it thursday your not preggo. it''s been to soon. You usually ovulate 14 days after you stop bleeding.

  • Just start taking the pill. You should be fine.
