Hello. If you have been taking BCP every day and have not missed a pill then you should be protected against pregnancy. However it is best and very advisable to take the pill at the SAME TIME every day without fail hun. This will protect you more against pregnancy. It is never too late to start taking the pill at the same time everyday. Take care. :o)

If you were on the shot but you switched to taking birth control pills, but you do not take the birth control pills anymore, you have a high chance of pregnancy if you have been having unprotected intercourse. All the active hormones from the birth control will have little or no effect after 3 days of not taking birth control.

My birth control is microgestrin 121. I have a week without taking the pill. can you get pregnant the last day of the my cycle during that week without the pill?

Birth control only protects you against a 98% chance of pregnancy. So there is still a chance you could conceive. However if you've been on birth control for one month and haven't had unprotected sex, then you will be protected against pregnancy. But if you miss any pills you're at risk of conceiving.

How likely am i to be pregnant My fianc and I had unprotected I'm not on birth control and he did not pull out This happened twice Is it likely I'm pregnant?

There is a 50% chance that you are pregnant if your fiancee and you had unprotected sex, you are not on birth control and he did not pull out. If this happened twice, it is 50% likely that you are pregnant but the only way you will know for sure is by taking a pregnancy test.

If you miss a period on purpose by taking birth control and have a later period can you get preganant if you have unprotected sex?

As long as you didn't go more than seven days without an active pill, you are not at increased risk of pregnancy. Skipping your period by taking the pill continuously decreases, not increases, the risk of pregnancy.

Taking the birth control pill lowers the risk of pregnancy. Not taking the birth control pill does not lower the risk of pregnancy. You are more likely to get pregnant when you are not taking the birth control pill.

Are you pregnant if your period doenst come but you just started birth control?

When did you start taking birth control and when was your period supposed to come? I know that many doctors recommend that you take birth control pills for about a month before you have unprotected sex. If you're still unsure, I would recommend taking an at-home pregnancy test - some of them can detect pregnancy very early (like as soon as you miss your period, I think).
