Re: Sex In first Week...Am I pregnant?

Women who take the pill as you have, with missing pills and not waiting long enough for full effectiveness are the ones who end up getting pregnant while "on the pill". My suggestion to you is to call the doctor who prescribed it to you and talk with them about exactly which doses you took, which you missed, and any other pertinent info (such as when you started taking it and the days you've had unprotected sex) because the doctor will be better able to give you an accurate assessment of your risk. In my opinion, your risk of pregnancy is very high with this behavior. And I think you're better off finding a birth control method that doesn't require a daily pill since you can't seem to keep up with it. Perhaps the patch, nuvaring, depo or mirena might be better options for you but you have to talk it over with your doctor.
