I am on othro tri cyclen, have been for a while. I take them to where i have a period every 3 months instead of every month. my last period was may 28th, 2010. On july 22nd and 23rd i missed my pills and possibly the 24th as well, cant remember. i made them all up as i'm supposed to , but my husband and i had sex everyday and he did ejaculate inside me everytime. Is there a high chance I could be pregnant, or is it low? Thanks!

Hi tig,
The exact percentage "chance" you have of being pregnant is unknown, unfortunately. However, the odds of conceiving increase with the more pills you miss in-a-row, and the more times you have unprotected sex.

Your pill is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy when taken consistently and correctly every day, and that percentage decreases with missed pills. If you miss 3 or more pills in-a-row, the instructions usually say to stop taking that pill pack, wait for your "period", then start a new pack after your period.

When is your next period expected (if you take the week-long "inactive pills")?
