Could I be pregnant?

So, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend about thirteen times earlier this week (April 9-April 11) and he came inside me at least three of those times. My period tracker says I was supposed to get my period on April 12th and I still haven't. Also, I just started taking the pill on April 6th, but I forgot to take it on the 9th and 10th. I'm not sure if the pill changes when my period is, but I've also read multiple places that it's very unlikely for someone to get pregnant that soon before their period. I don't know what's going on and I'd really like to know. I'm only seventeen and I'm super confused. Is it possible that I could have been ovulating during the times we had sex because I forgot to take the pill or something? I did have discharge like I get when I'm ovulating on the nights that I didn't take the pill. Please please help! Thank you!!!

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

The only thing you can you do is wait for your period to come. If it doesn't, you need to test for pregnancy. The pill is very effective in preventing pregnancy *if* it's taken correctly (on time, no missed pills). If your pills do get messed up, you need to use an alternate method of birth control like condoms, until you are back on track again.
