Not taking it correctly does increase the chances for pregnancy but you are still better protected than not using anything at all. If you are going to use birth control pills, be sure to get the full effects from them by using them every day within an hour each way of the time you choose as "pill time". So if you choose 8am, be sure to take it always between 7am and 9am to be considered "on time" Set and alarm on your cell phone, put a sticky note on your bathroom mirror, put your pills by your toothbrush, whatever you have to do to remind yourself to take your pill! Chances are pretty slim that you are pregnant. Keep taking your pill and try to get it every day about the same time. If your period is a week or more late, do a pregnancy test. Dont waste your money before then because it may not be as accurate. Chances are best that you are not pregnant and even if you were, the bit of exposure to the hormones wont hurt a fetus so dont stop taking the Pill.
