Can you get pregnant if you are on the patch but you forgot to start a new patch for that week and had unprotected sex?

Yes you can become pregnant if you have forgotten to change the patch on your patch change day. If you forgot 1-2 days after your patch change day and you put the patch on immediately when you remember, you are okay. But any longer than 2 (3 or more) days you must use a back-up contraceptive to protect from becoming pregnant and the day you put on the forgotten patch is your new patch change day. If you have had unprotected sex in the during the end of the 2nd day and so on, you have a real good chance of being pregnant and should go see your doctor to get tested.

I would think that you could get pregnant. I want to get pregnant but the bf doesn't right now! I figure if I don't change my patch I could get pregnant.

A woman can only be pregnant once at a time. if she has unprotected sex while pregnant, this cannot start another baby.

No. You can get pregnant just about any time.

There is still a possibility that you can be pregnant, if you have unprotected sex go see a doctor if you think you are pregnant

You should be. I've found the patch is much more forgiving than the pill is.Nothing other than you have a new patch change date.If she applied the patch when she first got her period then no other contraceptive is needed. If she was a Sunday start you must wait atleast 7 days before unprotected intercourse. This is what i was told by an orth evra spokesperson on the phone.

If you did not use the patch as directed, you could be pregnant. Take a pregnancy test no sooner than ten days after sex. Start the patch again or change to another effective method if you don't want to get pregnant.

Hello, It is possible you could become pregnant while not wearing the patch for a few days because the patch will not be protecting you against pregnancy for the few days you wasn't wearing it. If you suspect you could be pregnant, then see your doctor 7 days after intercourse for a quantitative beta hcg blood test to determine if you're pregnant or not. Take care.

Then you're probably just getting your period.Or, you could be pregnant, if you've had unprotected sex.

If you mean nine days after unprotected intercourse it is just about possible to start having symptoms but it sounds more like you have the flu.

User Avatar

Sounds like smear blood. You might or might not be pregnant. Better have a proper test made.

Through unprotected intercourse, a woman becomes pregnant. The sperm from the male meets the egg in the uterus to fertilize it. This fertilization is the start of pregnancy.In the usual way, if that is not working and you really wish to get pregnant talk to your doctor who will have answers to all of your questions.

First, take your patch. then grab your sewing kit and start to sew your patch to your other patch, you are done.

User Avatar

Very good since the antibiotics negate the effect of the pill (you are unprotected) and you start to ovulate as soon as the pill's effect is gone.

User Avatar

Are you wondering if you can get pregnant without having had your first period? Well, yes you can. If you're having unprotected sex when your first menstrual cycle is starting, then you can get pregnant witout having had a period first. That'd be unsuitably early to start having sex, and terribly early to become pregnant.

Yes, if you want to change from the shot to the patch, start the patch when your next injection is due.

User Avatar

You might start feeling tired-er during the day, but the best bet is testing with a pregnancy tester (forgot the name of them)

User Avatar

You describe a situation that is low risk of pregnancy. Just make sure that you put your next patch on after no more than seven days (one day of the week earlier than last month's first patch).

The odds are very slim, but not impossible, that you'll become pregnant. Generally, you have to go three days without the pill to "undo" the pill. If in doubt, use a condom.

User Avatar

No. It could be from slight irritation to the cervical area, or from slight tearing at the vaginal opening, or possibly your period was about to start anyway. While this doesn't mean that you are pregnant, it also doesn't mean that you aren't pregnant. If you have been having unprotected sex, and are concerned that you may be pregnant, take a pregnancy test.

Swelling breasts can be a sign that your period will start soon. If you've had unprotected sex, swollen breasts (along with a delayed period) can mean that you're pregnant. You can take a pregnancy test three weeks after your last time having unprotected sex to find out.

User Avatar

Yes, I did not insert my NuvaRing for 9 days and found out I was pregnant. Follow all of the directions and be sure to use backup if your ring is out greater than 7 days.

The odds are very low that you would be pregnant having sex so soon after your period. Not impossible, but ovulation (your fertile time) usually happens within 2 weeks after the start of your period.
