I missed two pills before having unprotected sex and he pulled out, how likely is it that I'm pregnant?

Tuesday I went to my doctor and decided I would take another form of the pill she said wait four days then take the new stuff. I stopped taking old pills on Wednesday, I had sex Saturday morning and my partner pulled out. I did not have a period the following days yet had some cramps and period diarrhea as I would usually get. I have been on the pill for three years now. I am supposed to skip placebo weeks so I never have a period. I do not know when I'm supposed to have a period. I am concerned about pregnancy and wondering if I should take plan b. Monday would be my last day to take it. (Side note: I started my new pack today, Sunday)

Hello Lbo40,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for coming to us for advice regarding your concern about potential pregnancy and whether or not to take Plan B.

Since you started the new pack of birth control pills yesterday, do not take an emergency contraceptive. Please contact your gynecologist to report what has happened. She can best advise.

The pull out method is not the most reliable birth control method. Three days without taking an active pill might not have been enough to trigger ovulation and put you at risk. Likewise, if your partner withdrew in time, there was no ejaculation.

I wish I could give you a more definitive answer, but without pregnancy test which cannot be done for at least another week and a half, I don't know.
