Yes. You could be. You should really speak to a doctor and understand how birth control works if you’re using it to prevent pregnancy.

well, considering you can get pregnant if you take the pill every day without missing one….. sure.  But in my experience it’s not likely if you just miss one.

Call your OB/GYN and they can either give you Plan B or talk to you about risks etc.

It’s REALLY unlikely that you would be pregnant after missing only one pill. Most pills even state that if you miss one, just double up on your next pill and you should be fine.

Go to a doctor or do an at home test if your period is late. if you are pregnant, its’ important to get off the pill ASAP and get on prenatals as the first few weeks are the most crucial in development. Let us know how it goes! 

edit: also wanted to add, it’s possible you’re pregnant. I know many, many people who got pregnant on the pill, even with perfect use it’s not 100% accurate.

It’s possibly but the chances are very, very low.

Obviously it is possible.  You can get pregnant taking the pill perfectly but the odds are really low.

Most likely, you aren’t pregnant.

If you’re on a combination pill (not the mini pill), and you’ve taken it correctly/consistantly for at least 7 days before you missed one, you should be protected. Check your pill’s instructions. Most combo pills say if you miss one day, you’re ok, but you can always call your doctor or pharmacist to double check.

You need to read the book your pills come with. All the information about what to do if you miss a pill etc is in there.

If you are mature enough to have sex you should be mature enough to read the instructions, follow them, and accept the consequences if you screw up.

I would start off by taking an OTC pregnancy test if you’re concerned.  Like everyone else said…it’s not likely, but it is possible.

@bamagirl08:  sorry, im sure no one’s patronizing you at all. Did you do an at-home test? Also- i  know a lot of hospitals or pregnancy centers give free at home tests.

Are you late for your period? Your first post really didn’t say much. :/
