If you have been taking your pills faithfully and at around the same time every night, is it ok that your boyfriend ejaculates inside of you?

…Can you be pregnant?

In order for hormonal birth control pills to work correctly, we recommend that patients take them within the same hour every day.  If you are following these instructions, you are taking your pills the right way.  Good work! Continue to aim for the same time every day to keep your birth control as effective as possible.

Typically, if you are taking your pills correctly and your boyfriend ejaculates inside of you, you are 92-99% protected from pregnancy.  However, birth control does not prevent against STIs. Teen clinic recommends using condoms 100% of the time to reduce the risk of infection and serve as a backup pregnancy prevention method.

It’s impossible to tell if someone is pregnant over the internet. If you are concerned, take a pregnancy test fourteen days after the unprotected sex. (This is the earliest the test would be effective.) 

Good for you for taking control of your own sexual health! Teen Clinic is here for you! Contact Teen Clinic to learn more about your pills, pick up free condoms, or take a free or low-cost pregnancy test.
