Missed 3 birth control pills during fertile days. Had unprotected sex 22nd-24th. I ovulated on the 25th... What are my chances of becoming pregnant?

Fair chance: A single instance of unprotected sex during a fertile period comes with about an 8% chance of pregnancy. Depending on your type of birth control, there may have still been some residual protection, but if indeed you ovulated then you likely had no protection. If you had sex 3x, then the chance could be higher than 8%, but is not additive (so definitely less than 24%). There you have it. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex 4x's. Took day after pill next day. Chances of pregnancy? Have period end of month. Not sure of ovulation

Little chance: A morning-after pill taken the day after sex is very effective in preventing pregnancy. It is about 95% effective, which translates to: if 100 women take the pill the day after sex, about 5 women get pregnant, and 95 will not get pregnant from that sex. The morning-after pill works less well on days 3 or 4 after sex. One should do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks later. ...Read more

AM "after" pill.: The "morning after pill" does not always work. It depends on creating an unfavorable biologic condition for implantation to occur. If you are certain that you ovulated, and your period did not start 14 days later, which is constant regardless of how long your monthly cycle is on average, get a serum pregnancy test from your healthcare professional. ...Read more

Possible: Birth control pills usually start acting right away for preventing pregnancy but reach their full potential as contraceptives if you have taken them for at least 1 month. Please continue to use condoms for 1 month. If you are really worried, then take Plan B now and continue to use the pill pack after the Plan B as usual (and use condoms too). Check a home pregnancy test after 2 and 4 weeks ...Read more

Never assume: An HCG of 28 indicates that you are pregnant. Many women experience bleeding in the first trimester, often around the time of a missed period. Have an HCG drawn about 48-72 hours after the last draw - it should double. ...Read more
