    unprotected sex on birth control?
    princesspeach14 posted:
    In April I had messed up my birth control twice early on but afterwards for the last 2 weeks I took it regularly. I got my period on April 24 and it ended on April 28-29. I had unprotected sex April 30 and on May 7 however we did use the pullout method which I know isn't really effective. I have been feeling tired lately, a little moody, and have been pretty bloated. I am wondering if there is a chance I could be pregnant? I know you're not fully protected on the birth control pack until you've taken it for 7 days in a row and I started my new pack April 26 so I had only taken about 5 pills and then had sex. and how soon could I take a pregnancy test, or do you think I should just wait and see if I get my period?
