How possible?
Hi Guys

I think my fiance and I might have staffed-up big time, I'm on the tryphasil pill, tuesday night i took laxador for constipation which has an effect on the pill and last night we had sex and forgot about it, and realized later that we had sex within 4 days, and the say once the pill is affected you are save only after seven days. My period is due this tuesday.
Do you guys think we should be worried? Should I go for morning after pill?
How possible is pregnancy in this case?

I assume that you take your Pill in the mornings. If so the pill will be absorbed in the system within 3 - 4 hours. If you only took the Laxador at night it will have no effect.
