i missed one day (1 pill) of birth control during the 2nd week and i made it up in the middle of the day. i had unprotected sex 5 to 6 hours later. then took the next pill that night. he didnt "bust a load" inside me but there was a little bit of jizz seen after he pulled out. ever since then, i took my pills every day like i should have, but now, since its the 4th week and i should be on my period, why dont i have it? what are the chances (a %) of me being pregnant?

Hi Stephanie,
I am sorry but I cannot predict or even tell you what the chance is that you are pregnant. I will repeat, that I think you should have protection by taking your birth control pills regularly and having made up for the missed dose.

Hi Stephanie,
I can understand that you are feeling quite scared right now. I have 2 suggestions. You can visit a Planned Parenthood office. I think the staff would be helpful to you regardless of your age. I am not aware of a pharmacy not selling a home pregnancy test to someone based on age, but I can't vow to that. If you are denied purchase of a home pregnancy test kit because of your age, can you ask an older friend or your boyfriend, if he is older, to buy one for you?

they said that they have to be my parent or legal guardian. my parents dont know about it either so i cant have them get it. i really just want to know the chances of me being pregnant. i still havent had my period and ive been taking the pills daily and made them up the day i have unprotected sex and missed it (and took 2 that day). WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?

Hi Stephanie,
On the day that you forgot to take your birth control pill, I'm assuming that you take your dose in the morning, you actually took 2 pills- one at midday and one in the evening. I think you should be protected.
How late are you for your period?- one day or more?
You could always take a home pregnancy test, but for the most accurate results, wait one week (that would be week 5).
