I am a 24 year old female. I am currently on the birth control pill "Orsythia" which contains levonorgestrel (0.1 mg) and ethinyl estradiol (0.02 mg). I have am alarm set on my phone for 9 pm each night to take my pill. But I am in college, and things get hectic, so some days I am so many minutes later than 9pm, but usually no more than an hour. I did miss one pill previously, but don't really remember when, but I did take it that day and the other on time as usual. I never made that mistake agian until yesterday, and i agian took that one in the day and the second at the regular time. Then last night, which was the day I took the missed pill in the day and that days the right time, my significant other and I decided to have sex, but did not have protection, and we have done this without protection a couple times before in this same way. We would only go until I got done and then he would finish on his own. So after we got done, he finished on his own, not inside of me. What are the chances this could have made me pregnant? I am worried, and please be respectful, I am human like everyone else, and sometimes mistakes like this happen.
If you followed the instructions for missed pills, pregnancy is unlikely.
As he also didn't ejaculate inside of you, the further reduces the risk.
Missing one pill in a combination birth control pill pack does not increase the risk of pregnancy that much (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/contraception/miss-combined-pill/). Also, combined birth control pills are not nearly as time-sensitive as mini pills are, and even those have a fairly generous 3 hour time window. On top of that, not ejaculating does reduce the risk of pregnancy (but that should never be your only method). You’re protected; don’t worry.
