so its my second month taking my birthcontrol and after my period i took my first pill and forgot to take the other one then i got sick and forgot to take them for the next 3 or 4 days. i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and he ejaculated inside a few times i didnt think about the fact i hadnt taken it. ( i no not that smart of me) but i was wondering if i could be pregnant then i was taking anti biotics after taking it again for 3 days and i know that cancels the effectivness out. so i was hoping if anyoen would no the likey hood of me getting pregnant?

Hi 12.14.08,
I'm not sure why you stopped taking birth control. When your pills get "messed up," you can throw away the pack and start a new one--be extra diligent about remembering to take your pills, and use a back-up method of birth control to ensure you won't put yourself at unnecessary risk.

Try to relax with those symptoms and don't over-analyze, as Missy said. I know it can be nerve-wracking, but you always can take a pregnancy test to verify if you're simply missing your period (it's late), or if you're pregnant.
Take care.

Are you pregnant would be hard to answer with your symptoms and without a missed period. Your symptoms could either mean pregnancy or your going to start your period. They are very similar. The best thing for you to do is wait until you miss a period, then try a pregnancy test.

I hope this helps. Keep us updated.

thanks for the information im still unsure iv typed in when my last period was and it said i would be around 3 weeks or so im sipposed to get my period around sunday so i don't have that much more waiting to do. i dont know if it is too early to be having symptoms because i have been getting sick when i eat and really hungry and i get really dizzy at times. i have been peeing just a little more then usually but not much only like 2 or 3 times more then i usually do.

Hi 12.14.08,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. Anytime you forget to take your pills and have sex, you risk getting pregnant. Most doctors recommend using a backup birth control method (condom, spermicide, withdrawal) when taking antibiotics.

Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
