I am currently on birth control. I had my period, and started a new pack Thursday. I took my pill on Thurs, but skipped Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and today. I also had unprotected sex, and got ejaculated in 1 time on Friday, twice on Saturday, twice on Sunday, and once on Monday (today). I am not avalible to take birth control tomorrow (Tues, Feb 15th). So I will have missed Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday AND Tuesday. Is there a chance I'm pregnant?

Hi Pinkgreen,
Since you have missed your birth control pills and are on UTI medication (antibiotics), you certainly have a chance of becoming pregnant and should certainly start using a backup method such as condoms until you can start a new pack of Pills. At this point, you should contact your Pharmacist and tell him about your missed pills and see if you can obtain a new pack. You have missed too many pills to catch yourself up by taking more than one a day, so starting a new pack is necessary.

Your period is not due until the beginning of March so you should wait to see if you miss a period then take a pregnancy test. Until then, you will have to wait...unfortunately.

I hope this helps. Can you keep us updated?

My last dy of my period was February 3rd. When should i take a test? Is there a high risk im pregnant now? I also forgot to mention, i am taking UTI medicine that says it decreases the birth control..

Hi Pinkgreen9,

Well first of all I would just like to state that I'm not a professional.

I have never taken birth conrtol so I'm not sure exactly how it works on a day to day basis but from what I read,

"[if birth-control is taken on a regularly basis, birth-control has] a 2 percent failure rate, which means that of 100 women using birth-control for one year, two will become pregnant." - said by Dr. Laura Schlessinger from her book "10 Stupid Things Women Do To Mess Up Their Lives"

So in your case, that's 4 days without taking the contraceptive and 4 days where the gentlemen ejactulated several times inside you.

In my unprofessional opinion, I think chances are very likely.

How long ago did you have your period? Usually a week to two weeks after the starting date of your last period is the time when you are MOST fertile, depending if your period is regular.

I think it would be too early to tell right now if you are pregnant or not because its only been this past weekend but keep tabs on your up coming period.

Home pregnancy test are more effective a week after your missed period although certain brands advertise that they can tell a few days ahead of time. Just be careful of a false negatives.

If become pregnant was not your goal, I'd start looking at options imediately. Have you thought about using Plan B? It can be pricey but on the Plan B: One Step Website, they offer a "$10 Off" coupon. Plan B is only effective 72 hours after unprotected intercourse. You still might have a chance to prevent it.
