missed 2 pills..................

I did a boo-boo this month. I NEVER forget to take my bc pills, but this month, somehow, I missed TWO in a row. I took two the next day and two more the day after that like the booklet says, but I have been spotting for the past three days or so since I missed the pills. My husband & I had sex the day after I missed both pills, it hadn't even hit me that I had forgotten two pills until after the deed was done! We are going to abstain or use condoms until my "real" period comes(IF it comes), but we did have sex that one time. Should I be concerned about getting pregnant? I have heard that missing more than one pill can cause you to ovulate and cause spotting because the hormone level in your blood has dropped so low that it it not controlling your body as it should. What does everyone think? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am not very knowledgeable about this but have been a bc pill user for about 15 yrs. In my experience if I forgot a pill and made it up the way you explained you did I never had a problem. Very rarely did I even spot. I never got pregnant or anything. Maybe you should call your doctor.

Hello I think you can get pregnant but it has to be around the time your suppose to ovulate and depends on the color of the pills youve missed and there all different. But Ive missed before and took two the same day and never got pregnant. I think you have to miss a lot like a whole weeks worth to become pregnant but not sure. This is what other people have told me so not really reliable.
