Unprotected: It sounds like basically you're asking what are the chances you could become pregnant if you haven't been on birth control for awhile now? Of course, if you have unprotected intercourse, you can become pregnant. The fact that you didn't have a period on the placebo week does not mean you're infertile. Sometimes there are other reasons women miss period on pill. More information is needed.
