  • Well, most women ovulate about 2 weeks after the first day of their last period. Is there a chance you were sexually active and unprotected around that time? Good luck.

  • You need to put a new patch on, take a test, and use back up methods.

  • There could be a chance that you are pregnant, but remember there are a number of factors. Have you had a period yet? If you haven't, you may not have even started ovulating yet. Also, the timing of the unprotected sex in regards to when you ovulated is a factor. Other factors include your partner's sperm count and your own body. The female body kills sperm. Although it can happen, most women don't get pregnant the first time they've had unprotected sex.
