I was on my first pack of Diane 35. I missed from pill 11. I only realised I missed them when I started bleeding on the 5th missed day. I didnt take anymore and stopped the pack and bled for 2 days. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on the second day I missed the pill and also 2 days after the bleeding, and then 4 days later. What is the risk of me being pregnant. I am new to the pill, hence the situation.
I want to know after how long can I test for pregnancy.

Dear Anon

Thank you for your question and for choosing EmpowHER! 

Anytime you have unprotected sex, you risk pregnancy. Again, your own situation will vary and we cannot give you a definitive answer.  It's really vital to take your pills as prescribed as accidents can and do happen. A pregnancy test can be taken 10-14 days after unprotected sex and when taken correctly, will certainly be accurate by the time your period is due. 

I hope this information helps you! If you have further concerns, taking a pregnancy test is a good idea if the time is right, or call your doctor for further instructions. He or she may want to give you a physical examination or a pregnancy test at the office. 

I hope this information helps you and you get answers as soon as possible. 

Anon, did this help?
