My boyfriend and I are sexually active and we don't use a pull out method or condom because of the fact that I am on birth control. I am on the 4th day of my sugar pills, and still no period. Could I be pregnant? I havnt missed a pill this month, but I don't take the pills at the same time everyday. Possible an hour or two off depending on what time I wake up. Also, I've read to use a back up contraception your first week back on to the actually pill off the sugar pill and we only waited 6 days and he did finish in me without a condom. Could either of those have gotten me pregnant? Any help would be greatly appriciated. I'm kinda freaking out.
The not taking your pills at the same time is lowering your protection. It will drop your protection from over 99% to about 90%. You still have 3 days yet to get your period, its not time to panic yet. You are protected all the time if you're taking your pills everyday. There is no wait time every month. I don't know where you read that, or if you misunderstood, but its not true. You most likely are not pregnant. I would suggest you set an alarm or something so that you take it at the same time every day.
