My last period was the 21st of june. On the 29th,30th,1st,2nd i missed my pills and had unprotected sex everyday on the missed pills,on the 4th day of the missed pills i started to bleed and took a pill around 7pm ( usual time i take the pill) i bled for 6 days. Will i get another period when im technically due? Or will i have to wait?

Are the chances of pregnancy high for me right now?

Thank you

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

There is some risk of pregnancy when you miss that many pills and don't make them up. A backup method of BC is advised until you get back on track with your pills for at least a full 7 days or more. I usually advise calling your GYN for further instructions when 3 pills (or more) are missed. So I hope you will do this.
