Hi. I missed 1 pill in week 1 (5th day) but took it right away at same time as the next pill. I'm taking Diane 35. My problem is that I had sex the night I missed the pill. I have been taking Diane 35 consistently and correctly for 1 1/2 years now and it is the only time that I missed a pill. What are the possibilities of getting pregnant?

Hi Gretch,

Just answered your question on your other post.

Dear Anon,

When you're on birth control pills and you miss one, there is always a chance of pregnancy-- especially if you has sex on the same night. I would try not to stress out over it too much-- what's done is done, right? Continue to take your pills daily and wait for your next period. If it's late and you are still concerned, you can take a home pregnancy test.

Good Luck!
