Second opinion] I missed the last actively pill of my pack. I took it two days later and had sex 2-3 days after I took the pill. Can I still be pregnant.

Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

It is very unlikely that you are pregnant. The placebo pills, which you would have been taking during this time period, are used during the non fertile part of the cycle. So you would not have become pregnant.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
