Hi ab425,
Thanks for your question and for joining EmpowHER. Anytime you forget to take your pills and have sexual intercourse without using another form of birth control, you increase your risk of getting pregnant. We cannot tell you when you ovulate during the month, or how quickly you could ovulate when forgetting to take it. Everyone is different. The best thing is to wait for your period, and not put yourself at further risk for unwanted pregnancy. If you miss your period, take a home pregnancy test.
For more information, please review these articles: Missing Birth Control Pills and Concerned About Pregnancy: Q&A, and Oops! Missed Birth Control Pill Advocacy Sheet.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
