What are my chances that I'm pregnant? Missed pills and pulled out?

Hi. I've been with my boyfriend for years, and on Thursday night we had unprotected sex. I've been taking the BC pill 'Sprintec' for over a year now, but on Thursday night, (the day we had sex) and the Wednesday before it, I did not take my BC pills for the day. So that means I missed two pills in a row in the 2nd week of my pack. My boyfriend has good self-control and he assured me that he had pulled out before he ejaculated. But I am still worried. Later that night, I took the pill I was supposed to take for that day (though I usually take them at noon) and the next day (Friday) I took two at once. It is now Sunday and I am so worried about it. I looked at an ovulation calendar and saw that if I was not on the pill at all, then I would have ovulated right around that day. Does this even matter? I know that there is always a chance of pregnancy, but with my situation taken into account I need an educated answer!!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Even thou your boyfriend pulled out before ejaculating.  Not always, but Precum can contain sperm. Any missed pill, puts you at risk of pregnancy. If you have a missed period, it would be good to take a home pregnancy test.
