Could I be pregnant

I missed the first pill of my new pack of pills. I took 2 that monday. Tuesday and Wednesday I took my pills correctly. I went out of town Thursday Friday and Saturday and forgot the pills. I had sex Saturday night we used a condom but not the whole time. On Sunday I took 3 pills. Prior to this mishap I took my pills correctly. What are my chances of being pregnant?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

When your pills are not taken correctly or you miss that many pills your chance of getting pregnant increases, especially if the pills were not made up (or not made up right away) and back up BC was not used. I can't know what the chances are. I always advise checking in with your doctor if you miss 3 pills or more.
