I missed my pill by 8 hours...and i was just wondering...i heard that sperm can stay in your body for up to 3 days...the last day me and my boyfriend had sex was saturday night...(and he pulled out...but i know that's not greatly effective)....now what are my chances of getting pregnant now??...and does sperm really stay that long inside you??
Sperm can survive in the female body anywhere between 3 to 7 days. Yes it can live that long in you and be vaible. By vaible that means it can fertilize the egg.
Since you did take your pill late there is a slight risk but no one can tell you for sure how slight that might be. There are women/girls who have gotten pregnant from taking their pills late or missing just one. Granted isnt common but it can happen.
Your best bet is to just relax and wait till your period is due and see what happens then.
You can go to the pregnancy or teen sex board and read the sticky titled Pregnancy Info for teens etc. It has tons of great info that might be helpful for you to know.

It is pretty rare for sperm to live more than 2 to 3 days, though I suppose it sometimes happens. You should be able to skip a day or two of your pills and it will not affect anything. Still, even those who take pills every day do occasionally get pregnant - nothing is 100%, it seems.
