Hi, I missed 1 blue pill during my 3rd week. I am a Sunday starter. I did not realize that I have missed a pill until Sunday night. I did not take this last pill. In the meantime, I had unprotected sex with my husband. Does this increase pregnancy chance?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Anytime you don't take your birth control pills as directed, or miss a pill, your risk for pregnancy does increase. You should still take that pill you missed.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
