Missed birth control

I missed the last 3 days of week 2 of my bc. I took 2 the next day, and 2 the following, then 1 each day after. I plan to start my new pack early to make up for the one day I am behind. After the 3 missed days I resumed the same pack and took 10 pills 8 days in a row before having unprotected sex. Could I still become pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Because you made up for the missed doses and continued to take your pills, I think you should have been protected. Withdrawal bleeding will let you know.
