I missed my birth control pills for a few days after having unprotected sex. I lost the pack and i dont always take it at the same time every day. My boyfriend ejaculated in my vagina so I am worried. Can I become pregnant and what is the likelihood for it?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Missing or skipping miss can potentially decrease their effectiveness. However, most women do not ovulate unless they miss a week or more of pills. This means that you would have been protected at the time you had sex.
At this point there is no further action you should take. You need to simply wait till your next period.
If it is irregular it is probably because you did not take the pill regularly.
But since there is a slight possibility of pregnancy you can also take a pregnancy test to be sure.
Below I have pasted a link to a HER article that talks about side effects of going off the pill.
