Missed/lost birth control pill week 3.

I'm on the 3rd week of my pills and the backing of the packing was messed up and I can't remember if I took the pill or if it feel out. Is there a pregnancy risk?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

If you missed one pill then there is some minor risk. Keep taking your pills as usual and use a condom for the next 7 days. Then there will be no risk.
