So my girlfriend missed her birth control pill on the 20th of the month so late in her pack, and never took it, but she continued taking the rest of the pills as normal. Is our chances of getting pregnant increased or is it the same because it was so late in the pack ?
Any time you miss a pill it can increase chances of pregnancy. When one discovers a missed pill it should be taken even if one is taking two doses at once (although no more than two doses at once). This would have only decreased chances slightly. Missing the pill altogether may increase them a little more. Chances are still better for not getting pregnant than if she were using nothing at all. You probably dont have anything to worry about but in the future, if she finds she has missed a pill, she should make it up even if she is taking that days with the missed one.

Missed periods, but on Birthcontrol. Pregnancy tests said negative, but is this normal for 18yr old?
