    If you arent confident enough to ask for the morning after pill, then perhaps you should reevaluate your resdiness for a sexual relationship?

    hello,
    i have read the info on the pill but i need some advice, last friday evening i has unprotected sex when i was drunk i am on the pill (dianette) the week before last i was ill with sickness and diarhoea so i didnt take the pill so my period came by tuesday it had stopped and i started taking the pill again i know its stupid but i think i took 2 on tuesday, 2 on wednesday and 1 on thurs and some on fri, when i had sex, i should have used a condom. after reading all that it says its 100% from the 1st day of ur period, but i dint take it then cuz i was ill so it would have been pointless, i have taken it since fri, i know this sounds sick but the guy i was with did *** but not in me (sorry 2 much info) however i have heard of precum and everything, i just duno wat 2 do do u think il b alrite? i duno what 2 do thanks xx
    Take the morning after pill.

    Then read the pamphlet that came with your pill. Why on earth would you take two for a few days?! If you miss a pill, either by forgetting or because you are ill, take the next one immediately and use back up for 7 days. if it is in the last week of pills go straight on to the next pack.

    If you are sick, or have diarroeah and can't take it for more than a day, go to the chemist for advice. You can take it PV (putting it in your vagina to dissolve) if you can't keep anything down, but talk to the chemist before attempting this.

    The period you had was not a 'real' period, it was withdrawel bleeding, your body thought it was the week off of pills because you missed so many. You will have compromised your protection, there is a chance you could have ovulated.

    If you are ill again, don't stop taking the pill. It won't work if you have sickness or diarhoea, but it means you haven't missed one, which would mean you have to use extra protection for the next 7 days, and it means you're period wont start.
    How will it stop your period coming if it's not workiing? If you are sick before it is absorbed the pill will have no effect, and is the same as being "missed".

    I hope you have gone to get the Morning after pill as a precaution, it's better safe than sorry but you shouldn't have to resort to a quick fix afterwards. Ask for Levonelle at a Pharmacy if you can't bear a clinic/doctors..but you have to be able to do things like that and act responsibly if you are going to be having sex.

    Severe sickness/diarhoea stops the pill working, they say if you are ill within 3 hours of taking your pill that stops the effectiveness the most.

    Some people just aren't confident in that kind of situation. It doesn't mean they are immature and unready for sexual relationships.

    yes it does. A sexual relationship requires maturity and responsibility. If you can't cope with dealing with the consequences, and hadn't prepared for it beforehand, you shouldn't put yourself in that situation.

    She's just embarrassed! Sure if she really doesn't do anything about it because of the embarrassment they yes, she probably isn't mature enough but all she expressed was embarrassment not complete refusal to face up to the situation. She never said "screw that, I'd rather get pregnant than ask for the morning after pill". Most people would be a little embarrassed to ask for the morning after pill, it's only natural with the way society makes sex so taboo and ridicules young women as being "sluts" if they accidently get pregnant.

    it is now monday and this happened on friday, the window is getting smaller. I just think that this sort of thing should be considered before the event. and she didn't take the pill very responsibly in the first place.

    But i agree, i hope she overcomes the embarassment and sort it out.

    Work it out in hours. The morning after pill is only effective if you take it less than 72 hours afterwards. Or you can have a coil fitted up to 5 days later, but you will need to go and discuss that with a Dr/at the clinic.

    go to the clinic, sweetie, now. they will sort you out. they are trained and know what they are doing and will have dealt with hundreds of similar things! If they think it's too late for the morning after pill they may be able to fit a coil. but until you go, you won't know!

    This isn't true. you have immediate protection if you start - and continue - taking one pill a day from the first day of your period. you didn't. taking them in a short space of time doesn't improve contraception. go to the clinic, explain what you have said here and they will sort you out!

    it was ok, they gave me levonelle, the dr said that i was at a higher effectiveness as i had taken about 7/8 dianette before and it takes 7 to put the womb to sleep apparently. i hope im ok. i would have got the coil but because it may have been painful and im going on holiday tomo i thought i best just take the pill as i cant talk to my parents about this and dont know what id do if i was in pain on holiday.
