Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Anytime you don't take your birth control pill as directed, and you engage in sexual intercourse, yes you could get pregnant.

It's not to late to take it now, even if it's not at the same time of the day you took it yesterday. Do still take the pill so that you can get back on track.

Do you own a smart phone? Here is a link to an app that helps to remind you.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
