I usually take my birth control (Lo Loestrin FE, if it matters) at 7:00 a.m. every day, but I slept through my alarm this morning so I didn’t take it till 8:15. I didn’t have intercourse this afternoon, but we did mess around, and I noticed some white frothy stuff on my pubes. Problem is, he was out of lube, so he had to use shampoo, so it very likely is shampoo (or a mix of cum and shampoo). I saw a bit of cum on my mid-abdomen, but the pube area is unknown, so I have no idea if some got in that area. Given that I had a virgin pregnancy several years ago, I’m overly paranoid about this, but I don’t want to take Plan B and mess up my body if I don’t have to.
Regardless of the risk – I have been meaning to post about how late too late is. I know the more on time the better, and I believe “late” is technically considered 12 hours (right? The “manual” doesn’t specify) but what if I’m 15 minutes late? An hour? 2 hours? I kind of need to know for when I do start having sex again, which will probably be soon. You know, for those days that I accidentally sleep through my alarm. Oops. Although… this seems bizarre: I just double checked, and the booklet says that if you miss just one blue pill (the full hormone pill), you DON’T need back-up birth control, but 2 or 3 and you do. Really? I always thought that if you missed any you needed back up.
