I have just started a new pack of Zenchet and it was my first one and have taken the pill for 3 days due to pharmacy issues. I have had unprotected sex in the last 2 days. Is there any chance I could be pregnant?

I would like to know.. Is it possible to still be pregnant if you missed 3 pills during the last week of your box of pills and had unprotected sex right before? I have a very light flow right now and for about 2 days of forgetting my pill I had those big mega killing cramps on the left side of my lower abdomen. I did read somewhere that it is possible to have your period and still be pregnant.. it this true? And also I was wondering if starting your FIRST box of birth control 2 weeks or maybe a bit less after your last day of period could be bad and raise the chances of being pregnant? I read somewhere once again that it could and also it could form two eggs in you... once again is this true? Thank you for answering my questions :)

You could definately get pregnant by missing a pill for three days. Some women who are very fertile and sensitive to the hormones in the pill can get pregnant after only 4 or 5 HOURS after missing a pill. If you want to avoid getting pregnant, you may want to go grab the Plan B pill from your local pharmacy (just ask the pharmacist for it). I think you have to be 17 to purchase it, but if you're not 17 you could just have a friend buy it. I think they're around $50. But you have to hurry because they really only work well for up to 3 days.
