The Pill

Hi Doc,

How effective is the Pill and can I really trust it? Me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex (yesterday) and she is on the 16th day of her cycle, which worries me. Pregnancy is definitely out of the question. Am I over reacting and what are our options? She is on the Diane pill and have been for the last 4 months.

Your urgent advise will be appreciated.

Thanks

Dear Worried
If the pill is taken regularly and correctly it is 98% effective. It is however always safer for you to use a condom - as it gives you some "control" and also prevents STD's
