If I missed a birth control pill can I get pregnant?


Answer by  sususu (866)

It depends on the pill, but you can likely still get pregnant. The pill suppresses ovulation, so taking one every twenty-four hours (unless directed to do otherwise by your doctor) is vital to make sure you have a constant stream of ovulation-suppressing hormones in your body. Always use two forms of birth control just in case.

Sure, it is always possible but if you have been on the pill for a long time and you miss one day it is not the end of the world.

Take the pill as soon as you remember, even if that means taking two pills in one day. If you forget on a regular basis there is a chance of pregnancy.

Any time you miss a birth control pill, it is possible that you could get pregnant. You could also become pregnant if you take a pill later than you're normal schedule time. If you are pregnant, you should stop taking birth control pill immediately. If you have not have sex, take two pills as soon as possible.
