In December 2005 on the 5th I started Using Nordette Pills I'm now on my second pack. Since I have been using them I have been having unprotected intercourse which resulted in my boyfriend ejeculating in me not once but several times. I just wana know How well do those pills work I've only missed one pill on the second but took it ommediately the following day and comenced to take them at a regular time 10am every day . I'm on my second last line before the red ones and I'm scared I might be pregnant could that be true. What makes the pills to no work at times? besides forgeting to take them

The Pill work by preventing ovulation. If you forget pills, ovulation may occur. Certain medications such as antibiotics can interfere with the Pill and vomiting or diarrhoea can also interefere by preventing absorption. You should have waited 5 days after starting the Pill before you are safe. If you had a period in January, pregnancy is unlikely.
