I have been on birth control pill
for 9 months. I missed a pill last night and took it 17 hours later
and took todays pill at the usual time that i usually take. My
boyfriend also ejaculated inside me but I went to the washroom after so
not much sperm went inside of me
Is there a possibility of me getting pregnant?
I am thinking of taking Plan B but I don't want to mess up my system and the days that I have to take the Birth Control Pills.

There is always a chance of becoming pregnant, even when you use The Pill correctly every time. However, if you've been quite consistent but for this little slip-up, I think your chances of pregnancy are not that much increased.
The only 100% method is abstinence. Your doctor will agree: condoms, Pills, IUDs, and injections are not guaranteed protection, even if
you use them in combination. My high school teacher and his wife
"oopsed" while on the Pill and using a condom. Even sterilization may
not be perfect, especially in men.
Using the morning after pill is like a superdose of The Pill. Only your doc can tell you if that will have interactions with your usual prescription or affect you in any way. This is a case where you really should seek professional advice. In many cities there are nurse help lines you can call for some basic answers, or you might look at WebMD.com as a decent online resource. However, these cannot address your personal health history so call to your doc would be a better solution.
There are many misconceptions out there about unprotected sex.
* Using the bathroom afterward will not remove all the sperm; the really strong swimmers will already be in your uterus and on their way north but the weaker sperm could be flushed depending on how soon you make it to the bathroom. Douching will also not prevent those stronger soldiers from getting into you. However, urinating after sex is a good way to prevent a urinary tract infection (UTI), but remember to always wipe from front to back.
* pulling out before ejaculation may prevent most of the sperm from getting in, but there is "pre-cum" that contains sperm. Your man may not even realize that it's happened, which is why the pull out method is considered to be a really lousy form of birth control.
* pulling out, ejaculating, then going back in again is even worse because you have the issue I mentioned above plus the residual sperm on his penis or your pelvis getting back inside.

Lovesicles,if you miss a dose of the pill next time,there is a small pamphlet that comes with your pills.Sometimes the information is listed in there,sometimes you have to ask the pharmacist to check their pamphlet.There are directions on what to do if you miss a pill depending on the brand you are taking.Ask the pharmacist for the information and keep it somewhere on hand just in case.Mamaluv explained the rest very well.Good luck!

I can tell you what happens with plan b as I am a pharmacist lol. Most people get violently sick,nausea and vomitting. If you do plan to take the plan b,talk to you doctor,and ask that he or she call in a prescription for you for some compazine to prevent the nausea as well.
