Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Birth control pills are taken everyday (aside from week 4) to prevent pregnancy so it you miss them, don't make them up as required and have unprotected sex, then you risk of pregnancy is raised.

To what extent, we cannot say. Each women is different.

If you don't get your withdrawal bleeding in the next day or two, taking a pregnancy test is a good idea but continue to take your birth control pills once the time comes to take them again to ensure you are continually protected.

Thanks for writing!
