can you get pregnant if you miss 2 birth control pills in a row during week 2 and doubled up on the 3rd and fourth day?

Dear Anon

Thanks for your question - this happens to a lot of people!

Your risk may be slightly elevated but if you have been on the Pill for a while, missed two days and then doubled up, then you should be ok, although the end of week two would be a danger zone as your chance of ovulating may increase.

Remember to use a backup method of birth control, like condoms, if you forget to take the Pill.

If you do not get your period, take a pregnancy test straight away, but most Pill manufacturers would tell you that your risks of pregnancy, although slightly increased, is pretty low.

Give us an update in a couple of weeks!
