Hi Anonymous,
Anytime you don't take your birth control pills and don't use any other kind of contraception and have intercourse, you increase your chances of getting pregnant. In any given month, a woman of childbearing age in good reproductive health can have a 20% chance of conceiving when not using any kind of birth control. The surest way to know if you are pregnant typically is a missed period. If you expect your period and don't get it at that time, you can take a home pregnancy test or call your doctor to request a pregnancy test.

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