Hi, My name is Nancy and I am currently on Tri-Sprintec birth control and I recently forgot to take 3 pills on week 2. After the after the 3rd day I remembered, I took all three of them and few days after I started my period, I contined taking the same pack and right now I am on the end of week 3. My husband and I couldn't wait two weeks without having sex and we just had unprotected sex. My question is, how likely could I get pregnant?

Hi Nancy

No one can really give you odds on whether you could be pregnant, but most pill inserts tell you if you miss several pills you should used a secondary form of protection such as condoms for the rest of the month. I would recommend that in the future.

We get a lot of birth control questions, perhaps the discussion will help you: https://www.empowher.com/condition/menstrual-cycle.

Good luck.
