ok, i was on vacation and forgot to take my pills, so i ended up missing 4 of my ACTIVE pills in one week. I then had sex 4 days later which was unprotected, and my boyfriend also came inside me twice or three times. im not worried about pregnancy because we are committed and are talking about having a baby soon.i also missed a pill the day we had sex because i was busy all day and also couldn't find my pills because i didn't unpack them yet.
So what is the possibility of me getting pregnant after missing 4 pills and one pill the day of having sex (so 5 pills) and my boyfriend coming inside me more than once that night? (ps i am also cramping thinking missing the pills made me ovulate because the hormones were out of my system for so long)

Any answers will be greatly appreciated Thank You

the chance of getting pregnant after missing pills is always high and if you missed the first one then its quite possible that you will be pregnan.so wait a few days and then take a hpt and you will know that you are pregnant or not and also stop taking pills if you will feel any pregnancy symptoms like nausea, fatigue or morning sickness. etc

good luck

Yup it's possible
How long ago was this? I would wait a week or two after the day you think you conceived to take a test
Let us know how it goes and good luck!!!

Definitely possible, especially depending on the timing of it all. If you missed 4 pills in a row, that could have allowed you to ovulate, and then if you had unprotected sex around that time, you could have conceived. Usually if you miss one pill, you should try to make it up ASAP (or double up the next day). If you miss more than one pill in a week, you should use an additional form of birth control (condoms, etc) for at least a week after that, or for the rest of the cycle, just to be safe.

Good luck to you...hope it turns out the way you want!

Definitely a possibility that you could have gotten and be pregnant. I would wait about 2 wks from when ya'll had sex and take a pregnancy test.

What week of your pill pack was it? If I remember correctly from my pill-taking days, the third week is the riskiest time for missing pills.

It's possible to get pregnant when you miss pills, and obviously the more you miss the higher your chances could be. There are a number of factors that play into that as well.

But with that said, missing pills can also mess with your body in all those ways because it is a hormonal med. So it could be either. All you can really do is wait and see if AF shows.

I have a similar situation. I missed days 1-4 of my pack which was June 10-13 and started the pack on day 5 the 14th. I had unprotected sex on the 12th which was day 3 and he came inside. I started the beginning of the pack on the 14th and I think I ovulated the 14th/15th. Sperm can live 3-5 days so I'm stuck in the mentality of what if. The absolute earliest I can test is the 26th from what I can tell but my Mom had two months worth of bleeding that she believed to be periods when pregnant with me and I know not taking the pills correctly can mess up your cycle.

I'm gonna try and get the extra sensitive hCG strips that can pick it up at 10 miu/ml hCG and take those to see

I'd wait a day or two see if period flow starts.

Good luck

usually, the blood just starts, not really spotting,
also i just recently had sex so the spotting increased a little but not enough for a pad and its pinkish red, with some brown in it. i know that sex can increase blood flow and increase spotting when you are already spotting.
but im going to get a test and call my doctor asap.

Take a test. if you are due for your period it should be accurate enough to give a positive if you were.

If negative, wait another 2 days and retest if af flow doesn't start.

Since you did miss so many pills, it wouldn't be crazy to think that maybe your period could be different too because missing hormonal pills can mess up your whole cycle.

well i woke up this morning to some blood on my liner,for the rest of the day there has been little blood, not enough to fill a whole pad. i also noticed brown blood with it, im not sure what it is, if its break through bleeding or my AF. i have a history of some women in my family having period like bleeding for the first 3 month of pregnancy. the flow isnt heavy at all, and its not a constant flow. it really happens when i use the bathroom. im used to my flow being a moderate flow and constant.
could the is be my AF or something else? im very confused :/
