My boyfriend and I had sex on Tuesday, I was only after taking my first Pill after my period, although I still had spots of bleeding that day and during sex. We didn't use a condom as I just started my Pill again that morning, He came inside me but I stupidly mislaid my BC and couldn't find them until this morning, So I missed my pill Wednesday and Thursday. What are the chances of pregnancy? I would really appreciate it if I could get advice and not a lecture etc. Thank you

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Missing a few days of birth control pills does increase your chances of getting pregnant.  The best thing to do it simply continue where you left off on the pills.  Do not double up on the pills.

Then, wait till your next period.  Is it is regular you are most likely not pregnant.  If it is irregular, take a pregnancy test to see whether it is negative or positive.
