If I miss 2 pills at the beginning of my Yaz pack and didn't double up when I continued, what are the chances of being pregnant and should I call my doctor?

Ok, here is my situation. I have been taking Yaz for 3 months. After finishing my 3rd month, I wasn't able to get a new precription until 3 days later. On that 3rd day I took my pill that afternoon, but I didn't double up (I didnt read that far in the packet at the time). I also had unprotected sex on the 2nd day I missed my pill and several times in the 7 days after period. It has been 7days since I started my 4th pack, should I call my doctor now or wait and see if I start my period? And how high are my chances of being pregnant?

Hi Ashes89--
I really can't give you a number, like "50% chance" because there is no way for me to tell you that but you do have a chance of being pregnant because you had sex while you were off your bc pill.
As far as telling your doctor about it, there really isn't anything he or she can do for you at the moment other than tell you to wait to see if you get your next period. For precautionary methods, your doctor may suggest pre-natal vitamins, no drinking or smoking, and a healthy diet. But in reality, he or she cannot control or stop you from ovulating or conceiving.

Remember that it takes a few days between sex and conception, so I really think your chances of getting pregnant are low but possible.
