I'm on birth control. But last Tuesday I realized I forgot

Customer Question

I'm on birth control. But last Tuesday I realized I forgot two days of pills so I took them both. That night I had sex and the condom broke. I think a good portion of it didn't get inside me. I was supposed to get my period Saturday night but it's now Sunday night and I have yet to get it. Could I be pregnant?

Thank you for your question.

I would recommend that you should have a home pregnancy test done.

It is UNLIKELY that you would be pregnancy since you did take your pills when you did remember them but since you forgot a couple of pills it could have caused a bit of a hormonal disturbance leading to a late period.

So it is important to have a home pregnancy test done or preferably a blood pregnancy test at the doctor's office to make sure you are not pregnant.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
