Missed OCP: the first thing is to have a pregnancy test. The birth control pill works only if it is taken at approximately the same time each day and if no pills are missed. Each missed pill increases your risk of becoming pregnant, I strongly recommend that you use condoms for the remainder of the month. Please see a healthcare provider to help you straighten this out.

Pregnancy test: Only a pregnancy test will bring certainty as to whether the lapse in taking the pills with unprotected intercourse may have resulted in a pregnancy.
