Could I be pregnant?

I am 18 and on the pill, I accidentally missed two pills in a row (I take them at night) and the next day after missing them, I had unprotected sex and my boyfriend did finish inside me. After we had sex I realized that I had missed the two pills and took one immediately and then took one a few hours later (at my usual time.) It had been only a couple days, and I've been taking the pills regularly since, but I have an uneasy feeling? Could I be pregnant from missing those two pills?

PS. I had my period a week before the unprotected sex. but I'm not 100% sure that means I was ovulating.

Hi Maryann,

The two missed pills were about 4 or 5 days into my pack.

Hi MCC899,

You should be okay then.

Hello MCC899,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for coming to us with your concern about possible pregnancy.

I think you should be okay and not have become pregnant, because you missed only two active pills. You did the right thing by making up for the missed pills once you realized it.

Your risk for pregnancy is high if you miss seven active pills in a row.
Were the missed pills the first two in the pack? Still because you took a pill immediately and a few hours later, I think you should be safe.
