Are there any possibility I could get pregnant?!

The possibility exists, even if it's small when the Pill is not taken correctly. Talk to your doctor as you missed so many pills. Once you get back on track, try to keep a regular routine. Pick a time of day you know you are less likely to forget. I remember (many years ago) when I was on the Pill, I took it in the morning, right after I brushed my teeth. I knew I wouldn't forget to brush my teeth so it made taking the Pill easy. Find what works and stick with it.

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Birth control pills are effective if taken correctly and regularly. So when you don't, there is some risk.

It's recommended that If you missed one, take it as soon as you remember. If you don't remember until the next day, go ahead and take 2 pills that day. If you forget to take your pills for 2 days, take 2 pills the day you remember and 2 pills the next day. You will then be back on schedule. If you miss 3 or more pills, contact your doctor for further instructions.
