Q. Am I at a risk of possible pregnancy after missing my contraceptive pills?



Hello doctor, 

I am currently taking a low dose of combined birth control medication (Femme 20/100) containing 21 hormone tablets and 7 placebo tablets. I was on a higher dose of contraceptive medication (Microgynon 30). Microgynon 30 was switched to lower dose pill because of severe PMS type symptoms. Currently, I am taking Ritalin 60 mg per day in 3 x 20 mg intervals, Abilify 300 mg depot injection monthly, Femme 20/100 contraceptive pill and Clonazepam 2 mg twice a day as needed. I had unprotected sex on day 6 of inactive pill. I forgot to take active pills on day 1, 3 and 4. But, I had 2 pills on day 2 and had unprotected intercourse. I am concerned about the possibility of pregnancy. It is now day 5 and I am regular on my pill. Am I at risk for a possible pregnancy due to missing so many hormonal pills? Also, what should I do from this point onwards? Should I continue as normal or begin a new packet entirely?





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

Since you have missed three pills, you are not protected for this cycle for further intercourse. But, you were protected in earlier intercourse.

To keep your cycle regular continue the present pack, but take extra precaution during this cycle. Use condoms. You can also use a Morning-after pill, not more than once in this cycle.
