Hi Anonymous,
Anytime you have sex, there is a possibility of pregnancy. Birth control pills, remember, is never a 100% guarantee that you will not become pregnant.

Since you had sex and missed pills, you will have to wait for a missed period to be sure, then take a pregnancy test in order to find out if you are pregnant. I know, the waiting game! Unfortunately, there is always a possibility.

I hope this helps,
