I'm in the second week of my birth control pill and I missed taking it twice? What are my chances of getting pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  Anytime you miss taking your pills or have unprotected sex, your chances for pregnancy to occur are higher.  You might want to use protection such as condoms, to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. Hope this was helpful?

Well, you haven't mentioned if you had unprotected sex (sex without condom), and I'm also not sure what pills you're taking, but my suggestion is that you take both pills and continue with the rest of them plus using a condom every time you have sex (or at least for 7 days, minimum). I'm more better-safe-than-sorry type of person, lol. Plus you can call your gynecologist and ask for professional advice from a person who recommended those pills. Hopefully I helped.

Wish you all the best,
