Hi. I've been off the pill for about 3 months now. My period is now 8 days late. On day 6 I took a pregnancy test it was negative. I am having pregnancy symptoms. It is possible I am pregnant and taking test too soon?

Hi Anon
You're not "fertile" when on the Pill. So the issue is whether you ovulated or not due to missing two pills. If you made both up on the third day and took that days pill too, you should be ok. Use a backup (condom) for seven days just in case.
Best,
Susan

Hi Anon!
Missing pills and not making them up can lead to pregnancy as I assume you know. But keep taking your pills on time and take a test in a few weeks just to rule pregnancy out.

Good luck!

Hi! This is my second month off of birth control,I have had unprotected sex while off. What are my chances of getting pregnant? I try to conceive on my fertile days but not exactly sure if I am ovulating yet.

Hi Anon!
Since you don't know your cycle yet we can't predict any chances. A woman with a normal cycle has about a 20% chance of getting pregnant every month.
