Am I pregnant?

Hi, I've been on YAZ for 8 months I believe. I can't remember. I've missed a few pills here and there but I make up for them. In april I stopped taking them for a few weeks because I forgot them at home while I was on a trip to Disney. It's been 4 months and I started taking them regularly. My boyfriend and I had unprotected intercourse but there was no penetration and he didn't finish. Since I've missed so many pills and I haven't gotten my period in a while (I missed the white pills and just continued taking the orange/pink ones) is it because I haven't had the 'withdrawal' that the period needs to happen, or am I pregnant? I can't tell my mom because she'll freak out. I just need to know.

Hi TessaHelp,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. I'm confused. When did you start taking your birth control again after missing a few weeks? Have you taken them on schedule this cycle? Where in the cycle/pack of pills did you have the sexual encounter with your boyfriend? When did your last period start? How long have you been skipping the white pills? Do you always start a new pack immediately, or do you wait the week you're supposed to between packs (skipping the week or taking the white pills is what makes you get a period).
It also may help you to understand that pills or no pills, if you have a sexual encounter and no semen comes into contact with your vagina, you can't get pregnant. It's great that you're using birth control though. If used regularly, it will prevent unwanted pregnancy 99% of the time.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
