I am 25 years old, I have been taking birth control since I was 18. I skipped 3 days of pills (a weds, thurs, and friday) On Thursday we had sex and he came inside of me, on Saturday we had sex again and he pulled out. The first timd we had sex was the 24th of the month and the 2nd was the 26th of the month. The first day of my last period was the 14th of the month. I am also taking an antibiotic that lessens the effectiveness of the pill. What are the chances that I became pregnant?

Piggy backing off this question. I have been on my new birth control 2 full months, just starting 3rd month (I’ve been on other BC for 5+ years). I had one placebo day and then started taking the new pack. I started the new pack Wednesday, took it every day until I forgot to take Sunday and Monday, I didn’t notice until I went to take it late afternoon on Tuesday. My boyfriend and I had sex Monday morning and he finished inside me since I didn’t realize I hadn’t taken my pills. I doubled up on Tuesday and doubled up today on Wednesday. I’m worried that since I missed 2 in a row and had sex in that time frame, that I may become pregnant. Help!

Hi I am 24 years old , Just stopped using Depo injection on the 02nd of October , started Yasmin on the 03rd of October . My doctr advise i start Yasmin on the inactive pill since i have been on Yasmin for a long time and not getting my periods. On the 09th of October i had nprotected sex my partner did not ejaculate on me , this incidence happened when i had 4 days having started active pill . Now i went to buy a morning after pill but the pharmacist told me not to since i was on Depo and it takes long to wear off the system. Should i drin the morning after pill and Stop Yasmin for a week and continue. Or should i continue with Yasmin on basis that Depo is still on my system and i was on Yasmin for 4 days while having the intercouse??Please help me

Hello Anon

Since it has been a few days, I don't know what decision you made but there was no need to take emergency pills. You were protected.

I'm on the pill that is taken everyday without a break, unsure of its real name. Been on it for a couple of weeks. I missed the last 4 days of my pill and have had sex with my boyfriend twice during this period. On both occasions he ejactulated in me. I'm due on my period in a couple of days time.

Due to the hurricane, I missed the first 3 days of the 1st week of birth control. I'm currently taking Trinessa, what should I do to get caught up? Take two a day? Or simply skip the first three days and start with today..?

Hello Anonymous,

You could have become pregnant. Counting the days of inactive pills and three days of missed active pills, that put you 10 days without active hormones.

It is best if you speak with your gynecologist.
