... same day she took low ogestrel at 9:30 and has not missed one day yet. What are her chances of pregnancy?

50 50, but you really tempted fate there. Any birth control pills should be taken correctly for 21 DAYS, before it should be relied upon for accuracy at protecting against UNWANTED pregnancy. A single birth control pill daily AFTER you had unprotected sex with your ovulating girlfriend, is not going to protect her from pregnancy. And the pill should always be started on the first Sunday of her period, because of the hormone levels during that time. Plan B would have been the better choice. She is either pregnant, or not, she can have a blood test at the drs office to check or do a home test. If she is not pregnant, make sure the dr explains the pill and how to use it properly, so you won't have to stress over this. Patti

This just begs for the question:
If the two of you knew she was ovulating and she hadn't been on birth control before that day... why would you make the decision to have unprotected sex??? You also didn't mention how much time has passed since that day or if you are continuing to have unprotected sex with her? In my opinion the chance that she is pregnant is more probable than not. The pill prevents pregnancy only after completing one complete cycle on the pill... if she is pregnant being on the pill will do nothing about the pregnancy. Also, don't count on whether she gets her period or not as the "sign". Many women have spotting and mistake that as their period. They don't actually know they are pregnant until much later to do anything about it or 9 months later and get a surprise delivery. She should talk to her doctor and let that doctor know what happened. A blood test will be the reliable way to determine her status. To "be" or "not" to be... better get her checked so she doesn't drive herself nuts now. But stay on the pill until she knows whether she is pregnant or not... and talks with her doctor. However this turns out... I wish you both the very best...
