cjb - The only way to know if you're pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. The actions that you've described could lead to pregnancy, and you can learn more about missed pills here: http://www.empowher.com/pregnancy/content/missing-birth-control-pills-and-concerned-about-pregnancy-q

The statements you've made about missing pills because your finance hid them, and that you have differing opinions about having a baby, are disturbing. It's your body and your decision on whether or not you want to have a baby. I hope you will give some serious thought to obtaining counseling or taking other measures so that you're not put into this position again. Good luck to you! Pat
