I was having irregular bleeding for the first and third week, acne showing up, bad cramps and nausea. My Bf and I decided that we would just use condoms instead. On Saturday I missed the last active pill and decided not to take the sugar pills this week. We had sex 3 times the week before and he did not pull out as he did not on Saturday when I stopped taking them. I haven't started a period yet (4 days after sugar pill was to be started) Is there a good chance I could be pregnant or would it take longer for me to ovulate after being on the pill for 3 weeks?
You will likely start yet. While you did miss an active pill (the placebos dont really count since there is no medication in them), it increases chances for pregnancy slightly. If you continue to have unprotected sex, whether or not he pulls out, you are going to wind up pregnant though so if you are going to use condoms, use them every time, ANYTIME there is penetration. He doesnt have to ejaculate to get you pregnant. It is a good idea to use spermicidal gel or foam along with condoms in case of breakage. If one uses a condom correctly, it should not break so easily. Be sure that you dont use oily or petroleum based lubricants. Use water based ones like KY. Oils and petroleum break down condoms and causes them to disintegrate, tear and rip easily. Also, dont use one that has been stored in your bf's wallet a long time as heat, including body heat, can make them break down in time. Be sure to leave room at the tip as a reservoir for the ejaculate. The very tip should hang off a bit-dont pull it over the penis smooth or it will break every time. If your period doesnt start in the next week, go ahead and test.
