I've been on generic version of Yaz for about a month. Leading into my third week me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex, he did eject inside me twice. I missed 3 pills after that and had a breakthrough bleed. Is it possible to still become pregnant?

Dear Pera,

Thanks for your question to EmpowHer.

There is a chance, yes. The only way to know for sure is to take a home pregnancy test. It's always recommended to have a backup birth control method if you miss pills or go off schedule.
