  • Not likely you just have to take it daily, there is never any good reason why it fails it just does.

  • If it's a low dose pill yes that can cause a BIG problem. I don't know about the stronger pills but you should always take them at the same time.

  • it was a very cheap brand of birth control pills... which could have been the problem.

  • I always thought you got pregnant from having sex. Is this something new?

  • Yep, very possible. Especially if you had sex within those 2 days.
