Could I be pregnant?

I missed three days of my birth control which was tuesday, wednesday, and Thursday but I took my Tuesday and Wednesday pill at 3:30am Thursday morning. I never took my Thursday pill and then I took my Friday pill. I had unprotected sex sunday, tuesday, and wednesday. What are my chances of being pregnant?

I need have had my period only a couple times then had sex and had a heavy-ish one right after it , I've missed it and it's been a couple months over two maybe three , I cannot get a test, and I feel like my stomach is getting bigger bc it wasn't as big before and I workout every single day

If you had unprotected sex and have missed your period(s) you need to test for pregnancy. You can test at home, at a doctor's office or local Planned Parenthood.

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for reaching out to us.

There may be some risk even though you made up 2 of the 3 pills. I can't say what the exact chances are. You can check with your pharmacist or doctor on this if you are still concerned. It's best to use a backup birth control method, such as condoms, for at least a week until you are back on track (no missed or skipped pills). Especially if pills are not made up.
