Can I get pregnant after missing 1 pill 3 days after my unprotected sex?

I took my pills up until last night, the sex was on three days ago( although it wasn't much of sex since we got interrupted and nothing happened; ie he didn't cm) , and I just got home super late from work tonight and completely forgot about it. I took it as soon as I remembered this morning, although it is my third week of being on the pill. I know since nothing happened at all, I should be okay, but I want a second hand opinion for reassurance..

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for a second opinion and the reassurance that you were not at risk for becoming pregnant.

Without ejaculation, there was no risk for pregnancy.

You did just what is recommended when you miss an active hormone containing birth control pill- take the dose as soon as you realize that you missed a dose, and do take the daily dose even though that means two pills in one day.
