Unhappy Broken Condom...very scared PLEASE help

Last night my boyfriends Condom broke and I'm very afraid. I am on birth control already but I've just finished my mentral cycle so I have only taken the birth control for two days now (Im not sure if that matters). I'm very nervous and unsure whether or not i should go out and take something like Plan B. Would it make a difference? Is it not needed? Would taking plan B along with my birth control be bad? Someone please help i know i only have 72 hours to decide whether or not i should take plan b. Thank you very much!

Re: Broken Condom...very scared PLEASE help

When you say you have only taken birth control for 2 days now---Do you mean you just started for the first time EVER 2 days ago? Or do you mean you just started this new pack 2 days ago but you've been on the pill for a couple months now?

If you just started birth control for the first time ever, then it is likely not effective yet.

If you have been on birth control for a while, but just had your period and have started a new pack, then you should be okay. If you have been taking your birth control pill correctly, you are fine. It doesn't matter that you just finished your period. As long as you took the correct pills when you were supposed to (and it sounds like you did), you should be fine. The pill is 97% to 99% effective alone. Although it's possible you may be pregnant, the chances are very slim.

If you are unsure or worried, ask your pharmacist and they can answer your questions.
