Less than 1%: If you take the pill on time, everyday, and restart the pill on time, the chances of an unexpected pregnancy is less than 1%. That risk increases with a delay in restarting the pill and can decrease if you use one of the extended dose regiments that have only 4 or 2 days off. Hope that helps.
