Will I get pregnant?

I'm 22 and my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex earlier he was wearing a condom until the end when he took it off. (Stupid, I know) Although, I've been taking birth control but I have missed 3 days. I just took a pill now but I'm nervous. He pulled out about 45 seconds or so before he came. Is there a super high chance I may be pregant? Yes, I know it's a dumb idea not to use a condom but I have been on birth control. Thank you.

Dear Katels,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER.

Even though you are on birth control pills, you missed 3 pills, so this can put you at risk for pregnancy. It's best to contact your doctor for further instructions. The fact that he pulled out before ejaculation lowers your risk. Until you get back on track with your pills, (7 to 10 days straight taking them consistently) you should use an alternate method of birth control, such as condoms, but use them correctly this time, beginning to end.
