In July I started my cycle on the 26th. I was to take my last active pill on the 25th, but didn't! Then I was unable to pick up my pills as scheduled do to being out of town and stupidty, lol. So I didn't start my next pack on the 29th like I was suppose to do, I started it on the August 2nd (which is 5 days late). Then I had unprotected sex on the 7th, 8th, and 9th of August (at least twice a day, we hadn't seen each other in a months, lol)...and I forgot to take my pill on the 7th and 8th, but I did take two on the 9th and have missed 2 other pills this week (this is the second week of my pack). I was taking yaz but was switched to the generic brand on July 1st. According to my calendar I was to be ovulating the 7th - 9th! Now, today August 13th I have been feeling sluggish and now have some spotting. What is the possiblilty of me being pregnant?

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

With all those missed pills and unprotected sex, your risk of pregnancy has definitely been raised but unfortunately you'll have to wait it out for a while to see if your period comes. In the meantime, continue taking your pills as instructed. It's also a good idea to always carry condoms with you in case situations like this occur.
