My boyfriend and I just had sex. Although he was wearing a condom, should I take a pill as well just to be extra sure?

So you seek that feeling of extra safety? Well, let’s see… We have both good news and bad news for you. The good news is yes, it does reduce your chances of pregnancy even further. The bad news is, it still isn’t a 100% guarantee.

To make it clear, you don’t need to take the morning after pill unless the condom slipped off, broke, or something else happened which resulted in semen getting inside your vagina. But there is nothing wrong with taking one either. However, try not to make it a habit. If you really want that extra feeling of security, we would say birth control pills are a better option than emergency contraceptive pills.
