Question: Missing a Pill


 thegodfatherknlm - Tue Nov 03, 2009 12:47 am

My girlfriend missed the first pill of her pack about 2 1/2 weeks ago and took it with the next days pill. Two days ago we had unprotected sex and I ejaculated her. Her period came the next day what are the chances that she will become pregnant?

User avatar Hello,
Not to worry. The fact she had a period reassures you that pregnancy did not happen with that cycle of ovulation. Missing one pill in a pack does not significantly raise the odds, especially when it is taken the next day. However, the mini pill (progestin only) is more sensitive and really must be taken at the same time every day for good protection.

I hope this makes sense.

Best wishes.
