I missed the first 2 pills of my BC pack and didn’t notice… long story. Working 13 days in a row, not knowing what day it was, starting the pack on a Monday start and not putting the sticker on to change the default dates. All really lame excuses, I know, but no use crying over spilt milk.
I’m on the low estrogen BC and I know that missing 2 pills in the first week is a huge no-no. Just wondering, assuming I O’d during the missed pills, how long after should I POAS and expect to know whether I’m pregnant or not? We had unprotected sex a few times that week, so if I O’d, I know it’s a possibility.
I know I could test whenever. Just looking for advice as to when to expect a positive result if I am pregnant so I don’t have to buy a bazillion tests haha

@NotablySidedJP: I don’t know about your specific BC but it’s highly unlikely you ovulated in the first week. Wait until your next period is due or late and take a FRER.

I would wait until your period is due to test. Chances are you’re not pregnant, but of course there is that small chance. If you know the day you ovulated, you could test as early as 10 days after.

The warnings on the pack say I’m supposed to use back up if I miss one pill. It is a low estrogen pill so it leaves your system sooner and you have a higher chance of ovulation than with the “regular” pill. Which is why I’m concerned. Thanks for the advice though. It’s been over 2 weeks since I missed the pills so maybe I’ll just test for some peace of mind if nothing else. I’d just like to know when I will know for sure if I’m pregnant or not since I pretty much never get my AF on the BC I use (~2 times/year)
