i have been taking bcp for 8 months already.
This time, i just finished my withdrawal bleed 5 days ago...meaning, There was a 7-day break before I took the first pill of the next pack. After the bleed, I started the next pack.
Been taking pills for 5 days consistently until i missed the 6th. I took it 12 hours late.
At that time also, my partner and I had sex without a condom. that was 9 hours before taking the missed pill. I took the 3rd pill on the scheduled time. Basically, I took 2 pills in one day.

How high is the chance of getting pregnant? I know bcps are not 100% effective. We only have sex once a month....ldr
We did withdrawal method and also took plan b within that day

When taking birth control pills, even if you miss a pill, it is not necessary and unhealthy to take emergency contraception at the same time.  There is no possibility of pregnancy.  Your symptoms are caused by taking Plan B pill.

Simply continue taking the birth control pills.
