If a back-up method of birth control wasn't used then yes, pregancy is a possibility.

Because you missed 3 pills, you're experiencing the same thing you do when you take the placebo pills, withdrawal bleeding. When on the pill, your period is triggered by the drop in hormones that happens when you take the placebo pills.

tlkittycat1968 replied to ariesgurl98's response:
Yes, there is still a possibility of pregnancy if you happened to ovulate during those 3 days you missed pills. It takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg to implant and until then, your body doesn't know you're pregnant and would still have the withdrawal bleeding.

If it's been at least two weeks since you missed the pills and had sex, a test should be accurate.
