Do you mean generic pills? Generic and brand name medications are one in the same, they can't be deem generic if they are different

Have you been taking bc pills and then changed to Gynera or is this the first time you've taken any type of bc pills?

Most of the time, you are told to use a back-up form of birth control such as a condom for the first 7 days of taking the pill. It's too late to take emergency contraception (Plan for the Feb 12 unprotected sex since you have to take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It's also almost too late to take it for the Feb 14 incident.

Yes, you could be pregnant. At this point the only thing you can do is wait and see if your period comes.

Also, you are not supposed to stop taking the pills until pregnancy is confirmed because stopping the pills mid-pack will mess up your hormones and may cause your period to either come now or late.
