I had an IUD for 3 years then I took it out in Aug 2009. My finace and I decided to stop having sex before we got married. So on 29Jan10 I started my period it only last a few days now. Then we decided to get married on 12FEB10 so I decided to start taking the pills on 31Jan10. So after 5 months of not having sex we messed up and had sex on Feb 10th with no protection. We also had sex on our wedding night no protection. Then of course like everyday since then. I forgot to take the pill on 13FEB 10 so I took it the following morning. Ive also miss it like twice since than. I'm on the pill YAZ. Do you think there is a good chance that I'm pregnant?

Thank you for your question and congratulations on your marriage! As anytime we have sex, there is always a chance that there will be a pregnancy.

Have you taken a pregnancy test or missed your period? Most Pills, indicate that you should use another form of birth control (such as a condom) for seven days after you start taking the pill. If you miss taking the pill, you are also cautioned into using condoms or another form of birth control method.

Did you want to continue to use birth control or are you both trying to conceive? If you are trying to remain childless and you are forgetting to take the pill, going back to the IUD might be a thought. This way you wouldn't have to remember to take the pill every day.

I hope this helps, please keep us updated on the pregnancy test results.
