I am a 40yr.old who had sex on the first day of a new pack of pills, I have been on the pill for 4 months prior, then I took the pill on Monday then forgot to take them for 3 days what are my chances of getting pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Any time you miss a pill and have unprotected sex, there is a chance for pregnancy. Unfortunately, we cannot tell you if you are or are not pregnant. Please continue to take your birth control pills every day at the same time. If necessary, set up an alarm as a reminder. If your next period is late or missed, you may take a home pregnancy test.

Best Wishes,
