Can you get pregnant from missing pills after unprotected sex?

I am a first day starter and missed the first pill of my pack (started a day late) I take Yaz. according to the pill pack, it says missing only one in the first week requires no back up protection. At the end of that first week (The day after the last day of withdrawal bleeding) I had unprotected sex, though my partner withdrew. On Tuesday and Wednesday (the sex was on sunday) I missed my pills, and doubled up on Thursday and Friday. What are the chances of pregancy?

I forgot to take my pill Tuesday and had unprotected sex Wednesday and then took Tuesday and Wednesday's pill on Wednesday. Should I worry about being pregnant?

I missed my Sunday pill the week of my period ending. Therefore I was in placebo pills for the week then missed my Sunday active pill and had unprotected sex on the Sunday. I took both pills at the same time at my usual hour the next day... Since I was not on any active pills for the week that I was on my period and then had sex the day it ended without taking a pill I worry that I am more at risk?

Hello, I just got off a antibiotic on Monday. Had unprotected sex on Wednesday and missed my pill on Wednesday and Thursday. I took one of the missed Friday morning and one Friday night. I then missed Saturday night pill and took it Sunday morning. I am having withdraw bleeding. I am on cyclafem 1/35. I am on my second week in my pack of pills. Is there a chance I could be pregnant from the night we had unprotected sex?

Hi! I've been taking Alesse 28 for a year now. I have been very good taking it everyday between 8:00pm-10:00pm, until Sunday (May 21) I forgot to bring it with me. I had unprotected sex at 11pm Sunday, and again at 9:00am Monday (May 22). Then I got home at 3:00pm Monday (May 22), I took my May 21 pill right away, then at 8:30pm, I took my Monday pill. What are the chances that I'll get pregnant? The pill I missed was the 2nd Sunday in the pack. Thank you.
