Missed pills before ovulation

I was taking bc pills for 4 days in week 1 of my pack before I missed 2 pills. According to my ovulation calendar I missed the pills 2 days before my ovulation. My bf and I had unprotected sex on both these days.The third day after missing the the pills I started bleeding heavy and this lasted for 3 days. So I stopped taking the pills. Is this my period and can I still get pregnant? My normal period isnt due for 2 more weeks.

Congrats! I did get a neg on a preg test 2 days ago and it came up neg.
My period is due today so I guess I will wait and see what happens.
How long did it take for you to get a positive after you bled? I dont know whether to count the bleeding I had from missing the pills a period or not, I think I screwed up my cycle.

Hi,,,, Your question is simular to mine... and the answer YES!!!! I did pretty much the same as you did, missed a few pills then had a bleed... but I have just found out i'm pregnant!! :-)
I have a little one already so for me to get pregnant 8mths after my son found it quite a shock.. considering it took over 2 years to get pregnant with him!!
Goodluck :-) ..

Any time you miss a pill, you increase your risk for pregnancy. It can cause ovulation to occur.
Sperm can live in the vagina for 5 days. Therefor, having unprotected sex two days before ovulation can result in pregnancy because the sperm can still be alive in the vagina.
Please take the pills as directed in order to be protected against pregnancy.
I suggest taking a HPT in about two weeks.
