In brief: Ovulation

Ovulation is possible if you miss a pill, the more you miss, or the longer the interval between pills the more likely the birth control pills will be ineffective.
When this happens we usually recommend using other measures during that cycle such as condoms as an adjunct. Abstinence is best. Good luck :).
