Sex Then Missed A Pill
Had unprotected sex twice during first week of next pill pack during bleedi've not missed any pills but taken a few a bit late can I b pregnant?
Took pill regularly, had sex with just pill protection but then took a pill late the next day, period finished 6 days before, pregnancy possibility ?
Very small chance: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. If a woman gets her normal regular withdrawal period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: If you did the test correctly at 2 weeks after the missed period, you are not likely to be pregnant. Plan B hormones may have altered your hormonal balance. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are less than 27 year-old. ...Read more
Missed the pill on 2nd birth control pack. Took it ASAP followed by that days pill on schedule. Waited 7 days before sex. Missed period. Pregnant????
Unlikely: Missing a pill as you describe would not interfere with the effectiveness of your bcp in preventing pregnancy. BUT, being on pill is not foolproof. Best to do home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg, then unlikely you are pregnant. Continue your BCP as scheduled. If still no period by next cycle, see your gyn provider. Hope this was helpful. ...Read more

Yes, it is possible: It depends on the type of oral contraceptive pill you take. Low dose pills are sensitive to failure to take pills same time everyday. If you have problems remembering to take your pill, see your gynecologist and change to the 3 monthly Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) ...Read more
Took plan B right after unprotected sex. On birth control regurarly. Is there a chance to be pregnant? Had protected sex the next morning.
Yes: There is always a chance to become pregnant with every episode of unprotected sex. Plan B is approximately 75% successful at preventing pregnancy, but you won't know the answer until you wait to see if you miss your period. Also, Plan B can cause some irregular bleeding that you might not be certain whether it is/is not your period, so I recommend taking a pregnancy test in 2-3 weeks to be sure. ...Read more
Stopped taking the pill, condom then broke during sex so took emergency contraceptive pill.
Period hasn't come in months, pregnancy test negative. ?
Took the moring after pill in my last cycle period came, unprotected sex this month, a week late and a negative pregnancy test, any suggestions?
Emergency contracept: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more
