Hey, iv just recently married and its bin three weeks, im on my third pack of pills but i forgot to take my pill on thursday, we has unprotected sex on thursday night and right after i thought of checking and found out i missed a pill.... im only 21 and i freaked out, my husband panicked too... however iv been reading everywhere that missing one pill is okay, unfortunatly the next day, friday was meant to be my ovulation day, so that scared me further. i took the pill straight away that thursday night and then took my friday one on time too. my period is due after 13 days...the wait is killing me with worry, is there a chance i could be pregnant?
Thank you for your help

Hi Anonymous,

Well in reality, is there a CHANCE? Sure there is....

Waiting does drive you insane, crazy, make you nervous and panic all at the same time. We have all been in your shoes. Unfortunately, waiting is the only thing you can do now. If this occurs again, you can always try Plan B or the Morning After pills to make sure you are safe but at this point, I think you will be fine...but you still obviously have that chance. Wait until you miss a period and then try a pregancy test. If you start your period and you still have concerns, you can take a pregnancy test also. This usually calms the worry!

Good luck.
