On the first of october i had sexual intercourse but i continued my pill and took it that night, took it one the second and third but on the fourth of october (2 days after the intercourse) i forgot to take it.. When i remembered the next day (5th) i took one missed pill when i woke up at noon then continued to take my normal pill the same night.
What are my risk of being pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for seeking our advice about your risk for pregnancy.

You were protected and were not at risk for pregnancy. You did exactly what is recommended when you miss a pill.

But this morning (6th) i woke up nauseaous and vomited. Idk if its because of something i ate or if its because i missed a pill..
Im freaking out.. I missed the pill 2 days after the intercourse and 2 pill intake before the missed pill, so i dont know how high the risk is

Hello Anonymous,

I am a bit confused...I understand that you missed a pill two days following intercourse, but did you also miss taking a pill for two days before having intercourse?

Missing seven consecutive days of active birth control pills puts you at risk for pregnancy if you have sex during that period.

Nausea and vomiting could be caused by something you ate.

If you do not start your period when you are taking the inactive birth control pills, take a pregnancy test.
