I had sex with my partner on the 27th of august my period was due on the 1st of September it's now the 4 I on the pill but 3 days before having sex I missed a day and didn't realise until I looked yesterday... I know I have to wait a week to see if my period comes but what are the chances of being pregnant?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

There is little chance of pregnancy if you had sex the week before your period is due as you would not be ovulating then (if you have a 28 day cycle, give or take a few days each way).
You can test for pregnancy about 14 days after sex if you don't get your period first.
