It is good that you read the intructions but if you miss one pill an dthen take it next day it will not be a problem it happend to me . if you read the instruction they will tell you that after 12 hrs passing the time to take the pill you have more risk. but take the forgotten pill and the other one a regular time if it do not pass the 12 hrs.

If you have missed that many pills, do not have unprotected sex. After taking your next pill wait at least 7 days before having sex unprotected.

If you missed the first week of birth control pills 7 days 7pills and then on the day of unprotected sex you take one pill and he ejaculates in you will it prevent you from falling pregnant?

No. Birth control pills are based on progesterone being in your system long-term. Chances are, you have already ovulated by skipping those seven pills. The morning after pill (PlanB) can prevent pregnancy as long as it's taken within 120 hours after unprotected sex. Plan B is the same as taking multiple regular birth control pills.

You were taking birth control pills but you missed 3 days and then you began spotting you did that for a week then you stopped taking the pills for 2 days to make your period come on can you get pregn?

Its possible but pretty unlikely. If you miss any pills then follow the instructions (which are normally to continue as if you hadn't missed any pills).

I missed a pill at night and didn't take it until the next night so 24 hours without the pill but didn't spot Last time I missed a pill I spotted right away So why wouldn't I spot?

It depends on which day of cycle you missed pills (before expected ovulation or after).

Birth control pills and morning after pills affect the body of the woman taking them, not her male partner.

Could you be pregnant if you started a new pill pack on the 2nd and missed pills on the 14th-16th and you ovulated on the 16th?

You could be. You have less of a chance of being pregnant if you actually took the rest of the pills in the pack. The pill helps keep you from ovulating and also helps keep a fertilized egg from implanting. That's why morning-after pills work.

Could you be pregnant if you missed two pills during ovulation?

You don't normally ovulate when you're on the birth control pill, but missing two pills could lead to ovulation, particularly if missed early in the cycle.
