Chances/ likelihood: Depends on how many of the oral contraceptive pills were missed ; when in your menstrual cycle you had the unprotected sexual intercourse. Bottom line, is that you should consistently use protection if you aren't ready for pregnancy. Take a home pregnancy test if your period is late. Take care.
