Missed pills + broken condom

Ok I have a question too, I went home for thanksgiving break and forgot to bring my pills so I missed them for 4 days (wed - Sat). The pills I missed were in the second week of my birth control pack. I started my period on Sunday since I missed them. I started taking them again that sunday (I'm a day one starter) and made sure to use condoms if my boyfriend and I had sex. My period only lasted about 3 days since I started the pill again that sunday (they usually last 4-5). We had sex the next Saturday (7 days after starting the pill again). I took it consistently those 7 days. We had sex twice and the second time the condom broke. So he did not ejaculate much. How likely am I to be pregnant. I'm freaking out!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  When you forget to take a pill, you increase the chance of releasing an egg from your ovary.  I don't see why you should be pregnant, if you were taking your birth control pills for seven days before having sex.  But, if you have a miss period it's important to take a pregnancy test.
