I am a 31-year-old female who just had a surgical abortion. It was my first and only pregnancy. I started taking the pill immediately (the same day as the procedure) and have taken it religiously at the same time daily ever since. I was put on Doxy as an antibiotic to make sure I did not get an infection after the procedure. I finished the full course of antibiotics. I had sex with my boyfriend 11 days after abortion and took the Plan B pill the next morning within 15 hours. Between my regular pill and the emergency contraceptive is taken so soon, how likely is it that I am covered?

Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thanks for the query.
Firstly as you had a surgical abortion, it was any way sure that you would not ovulate soon in this cycle and your menses would be delayed. But, you chose to be on the oral contraceptive, which was correct, but at the same time, Doxycycline as an antibiotic would have reduced the efficacy per se.
So after 11 days of abortion when you had sex, it is unlikely that you would have ovulated for another four to five days. But, to cover up, you took a Plan B pill (emergency contraceptive pill) which is again protective towards pregnancy in your case.
So, overall you are protected, and I suggest you should stop your daily contraceptive pill as of now and wait for a early withdrawal bleed and then can restart the pills from day 2 of bleeding. You are pregnancy safe. Relax.
