Having : Having unprotected sex and not starting your pills on time will put you at risk for pregnancy. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. If you are pregnant, being on the pill now will not affect it, so do not stop them. Good luck!
