  • Yes you can. You can get pregnant even without missing any pills....and you can only "Make up" 3 days worth of pills.

  • Whoa..that's 1/3 of your pills lol. Loestrin is a low-dose pill so missing one even is scary, let alone 8 lol....I would use a back up method and start a new pack after your next period

  • You can get pregnant when you're properly taking the pill, so of course you can when you're not!
