I’ve been on birth control for 6 days I use it at 7:45 every day…

…My boyfriend came in me and I’m worried that there’s a chance of me getting pregnant ?

When someone starts a new hormonal method of birth control (like the pill) they need to use a back up method (like condoms or practicing abstinence) for one week before that method will be effective.

After that first week, the hormones will be integrated into the body and can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina) when taken correctly. In order for The Pill to be taken correctly, a person needs to take the pill every day at the same time. 

Since unprotected sex occurred before the 7 days, there would be a risk of pregnancy. Emergency Contraception is an option which can be taken up to 5 days after the sexual contact occurs, but it is more effective the sooner it is taken.

Remember hormonal forms of birth control do not reduce the risk of pregnancy. Only condoms and dental dams can.
