Birth control??
My boyfriend and I had sex without a condom yesterday, I'm on the Pill (Yasmin) and I was wondering how effective birth control it is. I'm kinda paranoid that I could get pregnant. I recently (9 days ago) changed from Diane to Yasmin and skipped my period by not taking the inactive pills. What are the chances of falling pregnant under these circumstances?

Am concerned!

They have a Q&A section where a Gynaecologist will answer your quetsions within 24 hours. You can also forward this quetsion to Gynae doc.
