I'm taking up Diane 35 and I missed 1 pill in week 1 (5th day) but took it right away at same time as the next pill. My problem is that I had sex the night I missed the pill. What are the possibilities of getting pregnant?

Hi, i have been taking Diane 35 for a year now. However last December, i missed one pill on the 1st week and completely forgot to take it. I took the next pill as per usual and only remembered the missed pill when I noticed that there was an "extra" pill left. I had sex a few days after missing the pill. Is there high risk of getting pregnant?

Hi Anon!

Thank for your post!

Anytime you miss a pill and don't make it up, there is a risk. But if you have taken all other pills, your risk is very low. If you don't get your period when expected then take a test but again, you don't have too much to worry about.
Best,
Susan

Thank you, Susan! I have begun to bleed which means I am not pregnant.

Hi susan, I missed 1 pill on the 1st day of the week? My 7 days are done but I forgot to take diane 35 on the 8th day. It's my 2nd week now, and I just had sex, but I did not missed any pill at all, just on my 1st day of my 1st week. I am just worried, do I have the risk or being pregnant?

Hi Anon
You should have made up that missed pill. You do have some increased risk but likely still quite low.

Hi Anon!

It is best not to change your "start date" for your birth control pills, and to begin taking your pills with your new pack on your scheduled day.
If you have sex during your inactive days use a condom as a back up.

Susan

Hi Anon
You should be ok if you are making them up the next day (and therefore taking two in one day). You need to stop missing pills this way.
Best,
Susan
