So this is what happened. Last month i took my pills perfectly. However i lost the last active pill of my pack. So i just went straight into my placebo week. Now realizing this. I should of taken a 7 day break but instead i took a 8 day placebo break. I started my new pack on Sunday and had sex Tuesday. My bf pulled out. But are my chances dramatically increased to be pregnant? For the remaining of the month i took my pills perfectly. I’ve been on the same BC for a little over 4 years. But this is the first time this has happened to me. I’m in my placebo week again. And am expected to get my period tomorrow. I am cramping slightly.
Lost the last active pill in my birth control pack, took a eight day placebo instead of a 7?

If you were taking your active pills at the exact same time Sunday through Tuesday and the following days you should be fine. The failure rate of bc pills is because individuals do not take them at the same time each day or miss days completely.
Hope this helps!
Can I ask what pill you’re on? I’m curious because I’ve tried many & they make me insanely depressed & achy. I was able to take Lutera for a year. A few others I was psycho within 10 days. 4 years is a good run!
