I take the trinessa pill and i was wondering if i could be pregnant. I'm usually pretty good about taking the pill at the same time every day but there were a few days i was a couple hours late.

If you took all the Pills prior to sex correctly and were a few hours late on the Pill the next day after sex, then it is unlikely that you will get pregnant so long as you took a Pill each day. It is best to try to take them around the same time every day but if you are early or late one day is not going to make a great deal of difference. Women who are consistantly irratic in taking their Pills can reduce the effectiveness some. You should be ok-no worries! Just try not to take them late too many days in a month-they work best if you dont allow more than 24 hours to go between Pills. Missing your time by an hour or two on occasion is no big deal. If you are late several times in a month, it can reduce effectiveness slightly. Missing Pills altogether presents the greatest chance for accidental pregnancy. If you find out that you didnt take your Pill from the day before then you should take 2 in one day and use a back up like a condom and spermicide for at least the next seven days or abstain from intercourse for the next seven days, either one.
