Birth Contol Pills Missed

I am in the first month of taking my Watson Low-Ogestrel Birth Control Pills (I am a first day of period starter). I began the pills on 23 July 2010. I missed my pill on Monday 25 July 2010, did not take two on the 26th. I then missed my pills on 30 and 31 July. I only continued taking taking the pills as normal (meaning one a day). I did not double up on 1 or 2 August. I took my pill as normal on 3 August (one pill). When looking at my pill pack I have three pills that are left. One in week 1 (Wed) and two in week 2 (Fri & Sat).

I am concerned because my fiancee and I had quite a bit of unprotected sex, with him ejaculating inside of me within the dates of 29 Jul to 2 August. We did not use back-up protection.
Also I began to bleed on Monday 2 August with the bleeding ending on Wed 4 August.
I am trying to figure out the probability of my becoming pregnant. I greatly appreciate any help that you could give me!

Hi Miss

We can't really handicap the odds on pregnancy. Taking the pill that erratically, though, is pretty much like not taking it at all. I suggest you wait a few weeks and try a home pregnancy test. In addition, you should probably use back up contraception for the first month you are on the pill while your hormones get straightened around.

Good luck.
