I started my BC a weekend ago on a Saturday but I started it in the middle of my period and I for got to take it on Sunday so my doctor told me to take my Sunday pill with my Monday so I had to double up. The Tuesday came and I forgot and I didn't take it I had unprotected sex Wednesday and Thursday. I didn't take Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday's Pill. So could I get pregnant

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

If you missed that many pills (and did not make them up), your pregnancy risk increases. Birth control pills need to be taken correctly and regularly in order to be effective. Contact your doctor for further instructions.
