    On birth control but missed many pills, could I be pregnant?

    I am on birth control, and have been for 3 years now. I was staying at my boyfriends house and missed my last 3 pills on my 3rd week. I had intercourse with him all three days and he did cum inside me all the times we had it. I've heard that you have a more increased risk of being pregnant with missing the last few active pills of the pack. When would I be able to take a pregnancy test to find out? I stayed with him Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. It's now Sunday and I should start my period Wednesday. Should I take it on Wednesday or wait until next months period? Please help!

    would wait to see if you miss your period and then take a test, if it comes back negative you can take another test or you can wait another week to take one more or you can just go about taking your pills like normal. good luck!
