Pregnancy: Pregnancy is always possible in the reproductive age group. The likelihood in your case is low assuming that you caught up by taking both the pill you forgot as well as the one for that day. Run a pregnancy test to be sure and let this be a lesson.

We can answer with more certainty if we know when your expected period was. However, because she took 2 pills on the day after, you should be safe.
