I missed taking my birth control pill at 10pm and I woke up realizing I forgot so I took it at 9am this morning. Then later I had sex,, how big is my chance of getting pregnant if I take my usual pill at 10pm tonight?

Hi Anon

As long as you took your missed pill the next day and that day's pill too, you are fully protected. Your risk has not been raised.

Even if we didn't use a condom? That's why I'm so scared!

Even if you didn't use a condom, you're ok.
