In brief: Maybe if low-dose

Most current generation birth control pills are low dose.
They are just strong enough to control your hormones when used on schedule. Miss 1 or 2 and you can ovulate. Follow the rules: if you miss one pill take it asap or with the next dose. If you miss two take 2 a day for the next 2 days and then go back to schedule. But only do this once a cycle. If you can't stick to it, use condoms, too.
