If you have unprotected sex and then miss your birth control pill that same day, can you get pregnant?

I've dealt with this situation 3 times this month and now my period is two days late, so im just wondering can i be pregnant.

  • The more pills you miss the more likely you are to get pregnant. You should really read the instructions

  • If your sick after taking a pill you can get pregnant, one miss is enough to get pregnant.

  • You can get pregnant on the pill without missing any. So yes, missing one pill even after sex could end in pregnancy.

  • That depends. Was it a sugar pill you missed? If it was one of the placebo pills.....not going to make a difference.
