If the birth control pack is started late (ie 3 days) would ovulation occur? and if so, when would it occur? Immediately? Or a week or so later? How soon?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Ovulation could occur if the first three days are missed. It could happen within days - there is no hard and fast rule about it. 

Keep taking your pills and use a back up for at least 10 days or throw the pack out and start a new one.
