I'm about to start a new birth control pill. Can I get pregnant during the placebo pills if I have already finished my period?

New start pill. If you are about to start a new birth control pill then you will not start with the placebo pills. You will start taking one pill per day at the beginning of the pack. The first 21 pills are the active pills and the last 7 are the placebo pills. Use back up with condoms for the first two weeks if this is your first month on the pill. Read more...

If I missed my birth control pill for two days right after my period and had unprotected sex after, what's the chance of pregnancy?

Unlikely. If intercourse was right after your period, chances of pregnancy from that occurrence are low. Chances of pregnancy are highest for the 1-3 days prior to ovulation, which is usually mid cycle for most women. Of course it is always recommended to be very consistent with your birth control to avoid any disruption of your normal cycle and thereby decrease your chances of an unintended pregnancy.

Tests are accurate. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. Read more...
