Missed a couple BC pills and had unprotected sex last night, but pulled out. Chances of pregnancy?

I've been with my boyfriend for years, and last night we had sex for the first time in a while. But that day and the day before it, I had not taken my BC pill out of forgetfulness. We did not use a condom, but he pulled out before ejaculating. I trust my boyfriend and he assures me that he knows when he is going to orgasm and when to pull out in time. But i am still pretty nervous. I took my pill for that day later that night (even though i usually take them around noon) and I took two today. What is the likelihood of being pregnant and do I have to wait until my placebo week to take a preg. test? I am on week 2 of the pack, where week 4 is placebo.

Hi amg,

Even though you boyfriend can feel when he is going to ejaculate, he and you are completely unaware of precum or preseminal fluid which is released during excitement. This pre-cum can contain sperm and therefore the possibility of pregnancy cannot be disregarded. You should still have some protection if you had taken your pills up until those last two days but since you didn't use a backup form of protection then you took a chance. Unfortunately I can't give you a percentage or probability of pregnancy-- no one can, really. All I can tell you is to keep taking your pills as directed and if you want to be sure that you are not pregnant--take a test in two weeks.
