birth control question

I would like to know if it is possible to become pregnant if you have not taken the pill for about 3 weeks or more?

Re: birth control question

Yes, it is possible. The pill only prevents pregnancy for the cycle you are taking it, assuming you take it properly, and for the whole cycle. If you stopped 3 weeks ago, it's effects have long since worn off and you could get pregnant if you have unprotected sex.
