Q: 

Can I get pregnant if I missed 2 pills in a row in the 3rd week of my pill pack? I started my period when I was supposed to and it was normal. I finished my period on a Saturday and on Monday I had a very light spotting incident in the morning.

This had never happened to me before and I am a little worried. The spotting was only when I wiped and was very very light pink.

Anon - Any time you miss a pill you are at higher risk of pregnancy. The following article provides more information: http://www.empowher.com/pregnancy/content/missing-birth-control-pills-and-concerned-about-pregnancy-q

Yes, it is safe to take an emergency contraceptive while you are on regular contraceptives. http://www.empowher.com/sex-amp-relationships/content/emergency-contraception-update-2011

Hello! I have been on the pill for two months now, this is my second week on the second month. My bf and I had unprotected sex with him ejaculating inside me four days into the week (thursday) and two days after i realized i was following the pill a day late so i took both immediately. I am sure i missed the pill sometime during the week only ONCE but not sure when. Do i have a high risk of getting pregnant? And is it safe to take a morning after pill while on a regular combined pill? THANK YOU!
