Missed pills: With no missed pills, "perfect use", the failure rate of birth control pills is 0.3%, that is >99% effective.In typical use, because taking a pill every day without ever missing is hard, about 9/100 couples will get pregnant/year. Not missing pills is the best way for the pills to work for you.
