Am I possibly pregnant?

I started birth control (ortho tri-cycles lo) on Dec 29th. I've had no problems. I've taken it every single day at the same exact time. However, I'm currently 8 days late on my period and I've recently had unprotected sex. Plus, I lost one dark active pill and continued on with my normal pack. I'm not on my placebo pill week. What are the chances that I'm pregnant?

Hi Anon!

If you missed a pill and are 8 days late, it's a good idea to take a pregnancy test.
