A little worried...Wondering about birth Control and when it becomes effective
So by last night, my gf has been on birth control for 7 days (she actually started because her doctor recommended it for her ovarian cysts)
We dated for 4 years and have been sexually active for about the same, but we always only ever used condoms. i'm 24, she's 22 by the way.
But last night for the first time, we had unprotected sex, and just to be safe, I pulled out 2-3 seconds before ejaculating.
I know pulling out is not a safe contraceptive method, so I'm still a little worried about pregnancy. She says I have nothing to worried about, because she has allready been feeling the common symptoms that come along with first starting birth control, and she also said that it takes 7 days for it to start working.
Is this a very common practice? I'm sorry, i'm just a litttle worried right now and probably won't take this chance again, but I'm 100% sure I pulled out, and she is 100% sure it has been 7 days. Any response would be great. Am I just worrying too much?
