I missed one pill Thursday night, in my third week, but made it up as soon as i woke up on Friday morning. I also took my pill about 3 hours late on Saturday night, which would have been my last active pill. My boyfriend and I had sex soon after. We used a condom, but it broke. He had already went shortly before we had sex. He went inside of me not knowing the condom broke, but he barely went. What are my chances of getting pregnant?

I usually take my pills at 8am, but I missed my pill on Thursday, and was late with my pill on Friday. I remembered at about 10pm on Friday and took them both, but I had had sex with my husband right before I remembered. How likely is it that I am pregnant?

Very unlikely, Anon, since you made up the missed pill properly.

On day 3 of my active tablets, I missed a pill. I did not notice and continued taking my pills, but realised 6 days after and so made up for it then to be up to date with my pills.

I had sex 5 days before my missed pill (during my withdrawal bleeding).

Do I have a high risk of pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

There was no risk for pregnancy, since intercourse happened during your period of withdrawal bleeding.

Hi, I missed a day of taking the pill and have been a day behind with out realizing it till tonight, so I took 2 to catch me up. I take them around the same time every night and had unprotected sex Friday and today(Sunday) Is there a chance that I could be pregnant?

Hi Anon

There is always a small risk but I would say that in your case, it's very small. Continue taking your pills as usual and I think you'll be fine. 

Best,

Susan

Hi, I missed either my day 6 or 7 pill, im not sure which one, and did not realise nor double up. I had unprotected sex regularly during these weeks but have continued to take my pill as i should be. My period is now due in a week but I am terrified that I could be pregnant. How likely is it?

The other day I had unprotected sex around the time I was suppose to take my pill, the next day I forgot to take it again. Could There be a possibility I am pregnant ?

Hello Anonymous,

Birth control pills work by preventing ovulation. Once you stop taking the active, hormone containing pill, you run the risk of stimulating ovulation.

Unprotected intercourse with ovulation leads to pregnancy.
