I am currently on birth control. I had my period, and started a new pack Thursday. I took my pill on Thurs, but skipped Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and today. I also had unprotected sex, and got ejaculated in 1 time on Friday, twice on Saturday, twice on Sunday, and once on Monday (today). I am not avalible to take birth control tomorrow (Tues, Feb 15th). So I will have missed Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday AND Tuesday. Also, I am unavavlible to take my pill tomorrow (Wed) either. I am also on UTI medicine that decreases birth control. I have been on that since last Wednesday (around 7 days.. And I am still taking it) Is there a chance I'm pregnant?

Hi pinkgreen9,
Thanks for your question, and for joining EmpowHER. You may want to call your doctor's office and ask what they suggest, or go to a local pharmacy and see if you can get PlanB or NextChoice if you really are concerned about getting pregnant. You may want to use a different method of birth control knowing you can't take your pills (condom, withdrawal, or abstain from sex, etc.). When you start taking your pills, you should use a backup method for the rest of this cycle just to be safe, but at least for the first week you are taking it. When on antibiotic medication, you are recommended to use a backup method of birth control (condom, withdrawal, or abstain from sex, etc.).
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
