I missed a pill, but had sex five days before my missed pill. What are my chances of pregnancy?

On day 3 of my active tablets, I missed a pill. I did not notice and continued taking my pills, but realised 6 days after and so made up for it then to be up to date with my pills.

I had sex 5 days before my missed pill (during my withdrawal bleeding).

Do I have a high risk of pregnancy?

Hi Anon

There is always a risk of pregnancy when you miss a pill and don't make it up on time but I would think in this case, your risk is very low.
