Should I take Morning After Pill
An_249337 posted:
So I m on a 21 day cycle of birth control I have 2 days left of the pill before I take a week off to get my period. Last night I had unprotected sex. I havent missed a pill ever. Should I be concerned with it being so close to me stopping taking the pill that I need to go get the morning after pill?
georgiagail responded:
No. You didn't have unprotected intercourse. You remain protected against pregnancy even during the time you are not taking the active birth control pills.

fcl responded:
The pill gives you equal cover the whole month round - even during the 4th week. You have absolutely no need to take the morning after pill
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
