| | missed dosage of ECP...HELP
i need help. im not on birth control and my boyfriend of a year and i had sex (its not the first time) and we used a condom. the condom broke and we started freaking out. i called my clinic and they called the pharmacy and i went there, got the ECPs and...took the first dose at, like, 3:30 pm. the lady at the pharmacy told me i should take them around seven, but i didnt because i had to wake up in the middle of the night to take some other medication anyway. but when my alarm went off i layed there, just for a sec, and next thing i knew it was 7 in the morning. my mom woke me up to say goodbye cuz she had work. so i took it then..and then i got really worried. i called my clinic again and, apparantly, my doctor isnt in until monday. i called a bunch of hotlines..but none of them gave me any information. i looked it up on google a bunch of times and i couldnt find..anything. so i signed up for this trying to find an answer. is it a problem that i took them four hours late? does it effect the chances a good amount? im so scared. my boyfriend is freaking out and making me freak out. i dont know what to do. i can't become pregnant. and i tried so hard to find a way out of it. im never having sex again, im so scared. i just need an answer. the people at the clinic are too slow and wont call me back. they cant call after 3:15 pm, i told them that. i have an appt with my physical therapist..and then my parents will be home..for the rest of the weekend. someone please help me, please.
