Unprotected sex and on seasonique pills

Resolved Question:

I had unprotected sex last weekend but am on the seasonique birth control pill. I felt uneasy since I had missed my pill a few weeks before so I had taken the plan b one step pill. What happens if I have unprotected sex a week later and I am on birth control? Some people say you can get pregnant because it affects the plan b one step pill somehow? Can that happen? Even if I am on the seasonique birth control pill?

Thanks for writing to with your health concern.

If you are consistently on the birth control , do not worry, you will stay protected.

Taking the plan B will not affect the efficacy of your birth control.

As you are taking the Seasonique consistently, you stay protected.
Your chances of getting pregnant are low.

All the best.
Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Patient replied :

I had unprotected sex tonight and it was a week later? Should I buy the plan b pill again? I missed a few days of my seasonique pill a couple weeks ago but have been on it for at least three years.

Yes, if you have missed more than one pill, then you should take Plan B.
Also, it is advisable to use a condom till this pack is over, and then start over with a fresh pack in the next cycle.
Take care.

Patient replied :

Isn't it bad to take plan b that often?

Well you should NOT be taking Plan B that often.
It can cause menstrual irregularities and has other side effects too.
However, the risks that an unwanted pregnancy has, are much more.
Hence to be on the safer side, it is better to take plan B, as it will significantly reduce your chances of falling pregnant.
Take care.
