What are my chances of getting pregnant if I tend to take my tri-sprintec BC pills late?

The effectiveness of Tri-Sprintec is reduced (only very fractionally) if the pills are not taken at around the same time each day. You probably have a lee way of a couple of hours either side of your regular time - where it makes no difference.

Thank you for you answer. It is well appreciated. I just wanted to make sure everything was going to be okay. Once again, Thanks.

Usually if you take it in the same day it isn't much of a problem. I have accidentally forgotten them till morning a few times, and was fine - but I don't remember having unprotected sex either. As a general rule in the same day is fine... Missing a day can cause problems.

Thank you for your advice, and answer. I really do appreciate it. But, I do have unprotected sex with my partner whom I've been with for over four years now.. So. I just wanted to make sure I was going to be okay. I've felt off for the past two weeks now. Once again, Thanks.

It's no problem. If you have been on them a long time, you have nothing to worry about. I have stopped taken them for 2 months recently, felt like I was pregnant (because of an active fiance lol), but it had only been my hormones messing up since I shocked them with the stopping of the pills. If you have been on them less than 6 months, I would be worried. Or if you have missed a day or more a few times in one month, yes I would be worried. But it sounds like you may just mess your periods up. It's always a good precaution to take a test, and wait a couple weeks an take another if you are worried about it. Good Luck and keep me updated :-)
