Hi Anon

Thank you for your question!

The birth control pill is taken around the same time every day in order to prevent pregnancy. So when it is not taken every day - or several days in a row are missed as in your case - pregnancy is possible. That doesn't mean it's going to happen, just that it's possible.

You need to throw out your pack and start another, and use condoms for the next 7 days. Call your pharmacist or doctor to confirm this.

If you don't get your period in the next few weeks, take a test but bear in mind your cycle may be off due to missing so many pills. Pregnancy tests are accurate 2-3 weeks after sex.

Best,
Susan
