Question Question about missed pills and chances of pregnancy.

Hi I have a question. I was wondering if anyone knows the chances of getting pregnant after missing 5 pills? See I missed 5 pills (was on vacation, forgot them) So I just quit taking them (Because I'd missed so many) My "normal" period was supposed to start this past Sunday and I haven't started yet. I had withdrawl bleeding but thats it. I took a home preg. test and it was negative. Do you think I should be worried? Well not really worried...I really would like to have another baby. Just not wanting to get my hopes up too soon.

I know that it is definately possible. I was on b/c pills and I only missed a couple of days and ended up pregnant. I tried the hpt too at first but it was just to early. I waited a couple more weeks and went to the doc and that's when I found out that I was indeed prego. But I also know someone who didn't take hers for a week or so and she didn't end up pregnant. I think it depends more on your body. I would give it a couple more weeks and try again. It might have just been to early.

Yup, deffinitely possible. I misssed 1 of my pills one night, so the next night I took 2 like the Dr. told me to do if I ever was to forget... but I ended up preggies! I was only 18 at the time & not totally prepared for it, but now I have a beautiful daughter whom I love with all my heart & I wouldn't change what happened one bit!
