Is it likely that I'm pregnant?

So two weeks ago I started my period, and it was my birthday the next day so I took 3 birth control pills to stop it (I wasn't taking them regularly at the time, I had some left over from last year). It stopped for a few days then started again and lasted 10 more days (they are normally around 7 days long). The 10 days finished on last Wednesday/ Thursday. I had sex two days ago (Sunday) without protection and I was wondering what the chances were of me being pregnant? I know no one will know for sure but I'm not sure if I was ovulating at the weekend, which I know will increase my chances of becoming pregnant.

If I hadn't delayed my period I would have been due to ovulate on the Sunday but because I did, does that mean ovulation will also delay or would it have stayed the same? What should I do now?

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

As you said, we can't say whether you are pregnant or not or when/if you ovulated. Since you had unprotected sex and were not taking your pills regularly, pregnancy is a risk although from what you have said, a slight risk.

If you were taking pills every day (and three pills on one day) then pregnancy should not be a risk but your post isn't very clear.
