Missed birth control pills.

I took my pill Friday morning and had unprotected sex. Saturday morning I took my pill again as usual, and missed my pill Sunday, then took it again Monday morning. Is there any high chances of me getting pregnant?

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
First of all, you did not have "unprotected" sex because you were taking birth control.
As a general rule, missing a pill does make them slightly less effective. But this does not mean that you will necessarily become pregnant. You do not need to double up on pills or take any further action. Simply keep taking the pills as usual.
If you miss your next period completely you can take a pregnancy test a week after.
