“I’ve already been to a family planning facility for the 72 hour pill. After that I started to use condoms more often, however, this time it broke. I’m taking birth control every night, but just started it. I’m positive that sperm got inside of me. Should I go and get the 72 hour pill again?”
A: A person needs to use a condom for at least seven days after beginning birth control pills. If the condom breaks, it would be a good idea to contact a family planning clinic to discuss their options regarding the morning after pill.
