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?

Hi,
I missed a pill on the Monday which was my 6th day on it. I made up for it ASAP Tuesday morning, took the Tuesday one as usual. Took the Wednesday one as usual and had unprotected sex that night. I'm starting to get some sort of pregnancy symptoms but I think I'm overreacting and it may be other stuff.
Please help!

Hello Anonymous,

You made up for the missed dose from Monday and have continued to take a daily pill, so you have been protected from becoming pregnant. You may be worrying without need.

Hello, all! Just a quick question. I'm probably totally overreacting. I take my pill every morning at 8:30 AM. I was out of town, and had to take it at around 1 PM on the same day. I took my next pill at 8:30 AM, and my husband and I had sex that day (yesterday). He did not finish in me, but should I be worried about pregnancy? Do I need to use Plan B? Thank you guys. :)

Hello Anonymous,

No, I don't think you need to take Plan B. You should have been protected even by taking the pill later at 1:00 pm.

Hi, I've been on the pill for years and I was on my last few pills but missed one and took my next days when I got home from work the next day at 6 but me and my boyfriend had sex (3 times) the day I never took it until 6. Is there any chance of pregnancy? I have one pill left out this packet

Hello Anonymous,

Probably not a strong chance of pregnancy because you were at the end of the pack. Withdrawal bleeding will let you know.

Hi Anonymous!
I'm in the same boat as you. I had unprotected sex the night after I missed my pill then took two the night that we had sex. I was just wondering if you ended up starting your period because I am down to my last 4 and am getting worried!
Please let me know ASAP!

Hello Anonymous,

Very slight chance. The recommendation is to take the missed pill as soon as you realize you forgot to take it. That can mean taking two pills at once. Using a condom would have reduced any risk.
