I'm on Gildess Birth Control. Two nights ago, I was on the last day of my sugar/placebo pill week and the condom completely broke during sex. (It was my first time.)
Will I get pregnant? Or how high are my chances of getting pregnant? I don't have plan B, and don't know when or where I could get it.Also, do my sugar pills still protect from pregnancy?
How long have you been taking the birth control pills? If this is your first cycle of pills, you are not adequately protected against pregnancy and need to take emergency contraception which is available in our clinic as well as at local pharmacies without a prescription.
If this is after your first cycle of pills and you have taken them consistently on a daily basis, have not had any recent antibiotics that can interfere with their absorption into your bloodstream, you should be protected from pregnancy at a 98% effectiveness.
The sugar pills aren't for anything other than to keep you in the habit of taking a daily pill --they are not effective for preventing pregnancy but your three weeks per month of hormone pills do.
