ask: 

I took my pill Thursday 3pm then had sex right after and my husband finished inside me. We had round 2 at Friday 1am. I missed my Friday pill (1pm). I realized it Saturday afternoon and took it right away then I took again Friday evening. Am I pregnant?

I'm usually off in taking my pills. Say 3-5 hours late. But it's still on the same day.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about possibly becoming pregnant.

I think you should be protected but to be sure check with your gynecologist.

As you probably know, birth control pills prevent pregnancy by preventing ovulation. A daily dose taken at the same time each day maintains hormone levels to prevent the release of a mature egg. Missed doses and taking the pill late cause a drop in levels and trigger ovulation.

Regards,
Maryann
