    Had sex the day before I missed a pill and a week after. Help!

    I took a placebo pill on accident. I didn't take another pill since it was day 21 which is the last day of the hormone pill, before my period/off week. After I ended my period, on day 6 of my new pack we had unprotected sex. I'm really nervous about getting pregnant after reading things online. I've been taking the pill for over a year too. How high do you think the chances of getting pregnant are?

    You can only get pregnant when you ovulate (when an egg is released) and if you had just had your period, you were not ovulating yet...however, you were on the cusp of ovulation. (About to start) so the potential exists, even if it is low. I would say there is a very good chance you are safe..but until your next period is due - you wont know for sure. You could start taking pregnancy tests or go get a blood test, but it may be too soon to tell since it is less than 2 weeks at this point.

    You should be fine. A call to your pharmacist should put you at ease;
