I forgot to take my friday and Saturday pill then Sunday morning I had unprotected sex. Afterwards I remembered my BC so I took the Friday and Saturday then I also took the sunday pill later on that day. Am I all caught up just by taking those 3 pills? And what are the chances of pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us for advice.

If you miss one or more pills, you increase your chances of releasing an egg (ovulation) that could be fertilized and lead to a pregnancy.

If you have missed a pill and had unprotected sex, there is still a chance you could become pregnant even if you made up for the two missed pills. You didn't take the missed pills until Sunday.

Please call your gynecologist and follow any recommendations.
