I have been on birth control for 5 months and taken it correctly for all five, but I recently went to stay with my boyfriend for the weekend and forgot to bring my pack with me. I missed two days of pills, and we had unprotected sex twice. However, he pulled out both times and never came inside of me. I took two pills each the next two days to make up for the missed pills. It is now the week of pills that I should be having my period, and I have not yet started. Is there a good chance that I'm pregnant?

Dear jlowry,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

You did the right thing by doubling up and it's better that he didn't finish inside of you. However, I am sure you know the risks of unprotected sex, so there is a chance that you could be pregnant.

Most likely you are fine since you did double up. How many days late are you? Your period may just be delayed due to doubling up. 

Taking a pregnancy test at this point would be accurate-I know it's nerve wracking to take a test, but it's really the only way to know for sure or wait a couple more days and see if mother nature comes.

Hope this helps.
