Question Curious about possible pregnancy

I was curious. I am normally on time with my birth control with starting and the time but with my new pack, I was a day late starting it , I missed one day and doubled up on the next. and then the following day I didn't take it again soI decided to just go off the pill for this month and wait for my period to start back and then start a new pack. My question is the day before I missed my first pill my fiance and I had "complete" sex and with me missing the day and then another day shortly after could there be a chance i could be pregnant? I have been off my pill for 5 days now and i haven't had any spotting or anything so I was curious if that is why i haven't plus I hae had boughts of nausea food cravings and heart burn. I would great appreciate if someone could hellp me with this mater. I am a mother but this has m baffled. Thanks!!

Re: Curious about possible pregnancy

Yes, even one day missed can allow your body to ovulate and you to get pregnant.

My daughter got pregnant 3 times while on birth control for various reasons. The first time she missed one dose and didn't think it would matter - it obviously did. The 2nd and 3rd times she was on an antibiotic and wasn't warned antibiotics can cause the pill not to be effective that cycle.

Also, for whatever reason pregnancy tests didn't tend to work on her until 2 weeks or so after her missed period. They had to confirm her 3rd pregnancy by ultrasound. Her doctor did the pregnancy test which came back negative, but she knew what it felt to be pregnant and insisted to him she was pregnant.

I hope everything works out for you.
