Pregnancy risk after unprotected sex

I have been on Camilla a "mini pill" for 5.5 years. Last Saturday I had unprotected sex in the morning and forgot to take my pill that night. On Sunday morning I took my missed pill and Sunday night I took my Sunday pill at its usual time. I have taken my pill as usual since then. I was on day 8 of my cycle. What is my risk of pregnancy?

Hello sophiac,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Low risk because you did have intercourse without using back up protection on the day you missed an active pill.

Hi I have a question , so I had unprotected sex on the 28th of May with my boyfriend and a week later I got my normal period lasting 5-7 days with heavy blood flow. One month later (July), I've been getting pms symptoms for about a week but no period. Is there any chance that I could be pregnant or could my period be delayed because I'm stressed ?
