What question do you have about birth control?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I am taking birth control (junel fe ) and i have been taking it late recently a lot of times around 2-3 hours late mulitple times but i got my period on time and I had sex while on my period without protection and I was wondering if I was still protected against pregamcy or if i should be taking emergency contraceptive

You are very safe and from what you have described, you will not get pregnant and there is no reason to take any emergency contraception pills. Taking your birth control a few hours late will not affect the effectiveness of your pills, only missing your pills will do that. Also, having sex during your period will not cause you to get pregnant. That is the safest time to avoid pregnancy. You are very safe and will not get pregnant.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?
