    my girlfriend and I just had sex no more than 30 minutes ago... it wasn't out first time but when i pulled out of her, the condom was broken. We're also both 18 years old and about to goto college... What do you think we should do? She IS on birth control and she doesn't seem to be as worried as i am cause she JUST came off her period so apparently if an accident is gonna happen that's the best time. Should we get ECP? I hear we're just supposed to goto a planned parenthood place and can get it for somewhere around $30...

    please help me...

    If she's on the pill (providing she takes it faithfully) or implant, the likelihood of her getting pregnant is slim.

    You might have the option of the morning after pill...

    I believe the pill is more effective than condoms, provided she takes them faithfully.

    My Godson is a pill baby. He just graduated high school. Thankfully this is rare. Dillon probably didn't impregnate his girlfriend.

    Of course; I meant that I wouldn't freak as much, since she's on the pill (which is more effective).

    Even better would be 2 condoms, an IUD, the pill, both wearing wetsuits, while abstaining. Throw in an angry father with a shotgun and it's purt-near 100%:biggrin1:

    OMG, in which Naked Gun did Leslie Neilsen and Priscilla Presley wear full-body condoms?

    Good idea. As much as we all can say it is improbable, (and chances are slim) there is always a chance.
    Do you have a woman's health center on campus?
    Pregnancy tests show positive later than you'd need for the MA pill.
    I would look in the phone book for a women's health care and ask if the MA pill is possible.

    thanks for everyone who is actually helping instead of being a jackass... well i did a little more research and it looks like chances of failure at 1-2% according to the FDA... shes never missed a day and shes been on it for 2 years... called planned parenthood and we might go in tomorrow to get ECP (morning after pills)... thanks again to people who gave useful information

    If you do decide to go for the morning after pills (keep in mind, it's a two-dose thing...) be prepared, they are NOT pleasant. It is a high-dosage combination of hormones, and the net effect is the same as D&C (dilation and curettage)... it essentially induces another period, so there WILL be bleeding.

    I've taken the morning after pills before..and God was it horrible. I had to take 4, then 12 hours later, take 4 more...and not on an empty stomach. The first 4 stayed down. The second 4 came up...and I've never gotten that sick....it was rough. But...I wasn't pregnant anyway...told my mom it was food poisoning...haha...I was only 16. Anyway..definitely take them if you have doubts.

    I don't think so, I don't know why there would be. Emergency contraceptive pills are much the same as BC pills, but a much higher dose. The idea now is to prevent implantation. Depending on the time during the menstrual cycle that it's taken, the drug may delay ovulation, or even interfere with fertilization. Most of all, the idea is to prevent implantation. There should be a 72 hour window of opportunity there.

    Please reference the above post by joker....

    You are correct, it is high-dosage hormones. I thought that was what I put in my post. BC pills and MA pills are hormones. Birth control pills are usually a combination of synthetic estrogen and synthetic progesterone. MA pills are usually a massive dose of progestin alone. Emergency contraception is generally considered "available" up to 120 hours after intercourse, most effective within 72 hours. Half the dose is taken, then 12 hours later, the other half. The drug works on the uterus, and yes, the idea is to prevent implantation. It will not prevent an ectopic (fallopian) pregnancy. The side effects do indeed depend upon which part of the cycle a woman is in, but almost always involves extreme nausea. (Out of curiosity, Mumzi, how do you imagine implantation is prevented... keeping in mind that ovulation can be prevented by MA, but that's not the usual mechanism...)

    MA definitely have legitimate uses, but again, these are hormones - unbelievably potent biochemicals (effective dosages are in micrograms, not milligrams, so it's thousands of times more potent than most medications) whose usage should not be cavalier.

    we decided to not go with the ECP's... i don't know much about the birth control pills which sparked my initial reaction... i didn't realise that some women take birth control because they prefer not to use condoms... i didn't realise it worked like that...

    Well, from what I have been told, and I could be mistaken...The pill is pretty effective as a form of birth control. Provided it is taken regularily, and not mixed with booze, it is supposed to have a 95% (?) chance of defending against pregnancy. Glad to hear she is ok Dillon.:biggrin1:
