Hii, I've been on birth control for 2 years and I recently missed 3 pills in a row and we had sex this morning? I took all three pills as soon as I remembered which was right after we had sex. How high are my chances of getting pregnant?

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

There is some risk, I can't say what your chances are. You might want to contact your doctor about this.

When you miss pills, use a backup BC method like condoms until you get back on track taking your pills for 7 days straight.
