Missed a few pills. Been feeling nauseous and have headaches. Been nauseous but hungry. Had unprotected sex. Recently had miscarriage. Could I be preg?

Yes, of course: No single birth control is 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. Statistically, your chance of becoming pregnant increases with each instance of unprotected sex.Your nausea may have little to do with this--I encourage you to explore my prior healthtap answers regarding causes of nausea).
