Could I be pregnant?

Hi, my names Jade.
I'm only 16, I had implanon in for about 2and a half years... I had my implanon removed approximately 2weeks ago from Tuesday. That night after removal I started taking the pill. But the next night I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, that next morning I completely forgot to take the pill again, didn't realise till Friday night, and took a pill... As I've never been on the pill till now, so didn't realise I was supposed to take 2 :/
Can someone please help me.? I'm a little worried.

Thank you :)

Hi Jademariee32245755,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

You could be at risk for unintended pregnancy because you didn't overlap your birth control. Typically when you change from one birth control method to another, overlap is used to give the new method of birth control time to start working prior to discontinuing the old one. If you do not want to use the overlap method, a backup form of birth control can be used like condoms.

In addition, the risk increased due your missing a pill after unprotected sex during the switch of birth control.

At this point, you have to wait and see what happens with your menstrual cycle. Don't be surprised if your menstrual cycle is irregular, that is to be expected.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
