So on Wednesday i had to take sun,mon,tu and the pill for that day. I usually take my pill at 4pm everyday ( birth control pills). So that same day i had unprotected sex at 6pm. I just want to know if there's any pregnancy chances because i missed pills and if that could affect me. Please get back to me
Yes, there is a chance of pregnancy. You should have used condoms as a back up for seven days after the missed pills. You really should never take more than two active pills in one day. If you miss one tab, you take the missed tab and that days tab. If you miss two days, you take that days and a missed pill the day you discover the miss then you take another missed pill and that days pill the next day to be back on track. If you miss three or more, you should start a new pack and begin all over. With any missed pills or starting over, you should use condoms for the first seven days after as a back up protection. Missing pills, especially as many as you did, puts you at risk for ovulating because of the drop in hormonal levels and if you did ovulate, there is a definite chance to get pregnant. Dont take something like Plan B now though-you basically did the same thing when you took 4 pills in one day. You may get some nasty side effects from all those hormones-nausea, headaches, sore breasts, cramping, etc (just like pregnancy symptoms which is really scary and cause you to stress) and your periods will probably be messed up for a cycle or two. If your next period doesnt come and you are a week late, then you can test for pregnancy. Until then, keep taking your pills, chances are pretty good that you didnt get pregnant and you want to be protected if you are not pregnant and the pills will not hurt the baby as long as you stop them if and when you find out that you are pregnant. Hopefully you have avoided that this time but do try to be consistent from now on-set an alarm on your cell phone and keep your pills with you so you have them when the alarm goes off and be sure to take them then-dont wait or you might forget again. Best of Luck!
