Missed a pill and had unprotected sex.

I take the pill Yasmin. On the first week I dropped a pill down the sink. The next morning I took the pill scheduled for that morning and continued to do so for 7 days. On the 8th day I had unprotected sex with my significant other. Do my chances of becoming pregnant increase? Do they remain the same? Am I likely to become pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

You should have been protected from becoming pregnant by day 8, since you had been taking an active pill each day following the mishap.
