    What are the chances of pregnancy from having sex in the middle of two consecutively missed pills in week 3?

    This is my third week into my first pack of Necon 1/35 pills. I'm on a Sunday start schedule and I take them at night before bed. This morning (Wednesday), I realized I missed Monday and Tuesday. I took the pill this morning per the missed pill instructions included with the pack. I had (unprotected) sex with my husband Tuesday morning.

    How significantly do the chances of pregnancy change in my situation? I know how to protect myself from here on out. It's what happened the morning before the night of that first missed pill that worries me and the fact that it's my first pack.

    I think it is unlikely you would become pregnant if you took your missed pills upon realizing your mistake. However, the risk is increased. I am not familiar with Necon, specifically, but many birth control pills provide effective coverage by the third week of the pill pack (if you started the pack after your last menstrual period). You can take the Plan B pill now to prevent pregnancy. Just be aware that it may delay your next period.
