So, we're not trying to get pregnant right now, but I think there's a possibility. Hoping you guys can give me insight.

I'm on birth control (combination pill) and have been for years and years. I recently switched work shifts and have more trouble remembering to take the pill at the same time. My last pill pack, I missed the last three active pills before the placebo week, so I had 10 days without pills rather than 7. No sex during that time. With this new pack, I missed two pills (last pill of first week and first pill of second week). I had unprotected sex and took both pills right after. The next day, I forgot to take the next two pills and ended up taking them 12 hours late. I'm now currently back on track, but had unprotected sex again, so I had sex twice in one week of missing two pills.

Do you think there is a chance I could get pregnant? I have no idea how to calculate anything since the bleeding I have isn't really a period.. My last "period" was 7/29-7/31. I know there's a chance, obviously, but I'm wondering if anyone has any similar experiences. I also have PCOS, which I'm told can decrease fertility.
