I missed taking the last two of my birthcontrol pills last month (not the sugar pills). What are the odds of me getting pregnant?

Well, have you had sex the past week?? If not, I'd say they're very slim. I'd use a condom, though, the next time(s) you have sex for a week or two, I think.

Good luck, though.

The two pills that I did not take were the last two of the third week. Stupid me ran off and forget them when I went out of town. Those two I should have taken friday and saturday and I started my period that monday. The thing is I did not think about it for i had sex the following week after my period.

If you were pretty good about taking your pills before I think that your chances would be pretty slim. That'd be something to ask your doctor about. Good Luck.

I think it is a really low chance dat you would get pregnat because your body didnt have enough time to ovulate befre it is time to have your period. Because usually you come on your period two to four days after you stop takin the hormone pills. If you missed one in like the 2 week, then I would be scared.

Just relax and do not worry about it right now. You won't be able to test anyways until its time for your period again. I was on the pill and took it like I was suppose to. I ate something that made me sick and threw up, along with the pill. And now I am 27 weeks pregnant. I have a better question for you. What pill are you taking? Theres this one site about all different health topics and one board is about bc only. Most women on there that have gotten pregnant while on the board were on ortho tri cyclen or ortho tri cyclen lo. I was on ortho try cyclen lo. But women get pregnant on different birth control all the time.

I was terribly irregular about taking my pills when I was on them. I didn't mean to be forgetful, but I'd take them a day late, take them at different times...and I just tried to get back on track the next time. I'm not sure how, but it worked out for me. I didn't get pregnant until we went off the pill.

Thanks so much for the lovely siggie Trish (mtdk454)!!!!

Well when I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo I forgot the last 3 of the last week once! The doctor just told me to take 2 each night until I made them up...but she also told me that I didn't really "need" to make up for those last 3 pills since they were at the end of a cycle, but that I needed to make sure I started and kept up with my pills the next month. I missed pills and tried to double them all the time when I was on them...I usually made them up the day after I missed them, but still I got pregnant so...my advice would be to follow what the instructions say, use backup protection for 1-2 weeks from the time you missed the pills.
