birth control pills

I hate to ask this type of question because I know everyone is sick of these types of posts, but how many birth control pills do you have to miss in order to get pregnant by accident? I occassionly forget for a few days and then I double up for the next few days. I haven't really been having any symtoms of pregnancy except feeling like I am gonna puke every few day's. And some occassional heart palpatations.

  • yeah if you forgot 3 days you're supposed to take a pill a day until sunday and then start all over, unless you arent a sunday starter then you start a new pack right away
