Hello ladies,
I know that this is probably a very dumb question but i wanted to know....so my period ended tuesday 3/12 and i was supposed to start my new pack of birth control pills (i take Ortho tri cyclen) and i didnt start my pills until yesterday (friday 3/15) I DID have unprotected sex on thursday....what are the chances that i could have been fertile and gotten pregnant?

I know any unprotected sex can lead to a pregnancy, but what are my chances that the birth control was out of my system?

How are we supposed to know? Everyone's different. All I can say is that's possible, of course. In the future, have an alternate form of BC.

I was on ortho-tricyclen up until I was TTC and I know I went like five days without it once (didn't have the money to pick up my prescription) and I was fine. I think the instructions say if you go more than three days without taking it to throw the pack away and start a new one, so I think your three days without it would be okay, but not everyone's body is the same, for all I know you could be crazy fertile lol.
At the same time, once i stopped taking ortho-tricyclen I was pregnant after two weeks of TTC.
