Birth Control Pills
Dear Doctors. My girlfriend started taking birth control pills yesterday. We had unprotected sex today. She is still taking the birth control pills as recommended. Does she have a risk of getting pregnant? Should she take emergency contraception? My best regards

That would depend on the date of her last menstrual period. Usually these pills are started from day 2/3 of periods. If she has started to take it this way then there is no chance of pregnancy. And yes she should continue to take it for 21 days without missing any pills.
