Hi confused10,

Thank for your question!

You didn't mention if you made up the second set of missed pills, as instructed - did you?

Anytime you have unprotected sex, you raise your risk of pregnancy but if you carefully follow the instructions on your pill packet, you can greatly lessen the risk. For now, you will just have to wait it out, I'm afraid.

Don't forget to always carry condoms for this very reason. If you are prone to forgetting your pills (as you seem to be) then always carry a back up or consider a different form of birth control for you so that you don't have any kind of worry like this - I know how stressful it can be.

Will you update us when you get your period?
