Nothing 100%: Short of having ovaries removed, no birth control measure, even taken perfectly is 100% effective. Even so, taking the pill daily, regardless of the timing is very effective - usually > 95%.

Possible: In small percentage contraceptives fail , missing a dose or untimely administration. See your gyn doctor.
