Possibly: Any time bc pill is missed, u are at risk for pregnancy during the rest of the cycle & should use alternate method of prevention (like foam & condom). Get home pregnancy test, run it. Increase Folic Acid just in case u are pregnant. If test negative, repeat in couple days or see ob/gyn/fp for blood pregnancy test. Avoid alcohol, drugs, meds that might injure fetus until your pregnancy status sure. ...Read more

I've been on the pill for a year and had unprotected sex. I missed one pill and was late taking another that same week. What's my chance of pregnancy?

I've been on the pill for a year and had unprotected sex. I missed one pill and was late taking another that same week. What's my chance of pregnancy?

It can happen: Since you missed two pills in the same wee and not one, ovulation suppression will be sporadic and pregnancy possible. If you took the pill you missed along with the scheduled pill of that day (doubling your pills) the likelihood of pregnancy is much reduced. Run a pregnancy test at the end of this cycle before you start your next pack of pills. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex and missed BC pill the next day. The morning after had period cramps but no blood and feel nauseous today. Pregnant?

Had unprotected sex and missed BC pill the next day. The morning after had period cramps but no blood and feel nauseous today. Pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal withdrawal period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

I started cilest pill 2 months ago, I had a 7 day break and a period. 2 pills into the 3rd pack had unprotected sex and missed the next 2 pills, help.

I started cilest pill 2 months ago, I had a 7 day break and a period. 2 pills into the 3rd pack had unprotected sex and missed the next 2 pills, help.

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. ...Read more

I have been on the same birth control for 3 years and recently I have been experiencing breakthrough bleeding. I went to my gyno and everything came back fine. But now its happening again. I never have unprotected sex and I don't miss pills. What is this

I have been on the same birth control for 3 years and recently I have been experiencing breakthrough bleeding. I went to my gyno and everything came back fine. But now its happening again. I never have unprotected sex and I don't miss pills. What is this

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Possibly: Your story sounds confusing-- but if you're confused too, do a pregnancy test, and avoid unprotected sex on the meantime before restarting your pills. Missed pills can cause spotting, and 1 missed pill is unlikely to cause a pill failure, but you may want to discuss other birth control options that are easier to remember. ...Read more
