I know sperm can live inside a woman's body and fertilize after the intercourse has finished..

I'm just curious..

If a woman is on the pill and has been taking it properly, and she has unprotected sex where the man ejaculates inside of her, and then the next couple days forgets to take her pill entirely, does she have a pregnancy risk?

Does your protection against pregnancy


And if it's okay, just a little aside question..

If a woman forgets to take her birth control pills for a few days at a stretch, then yes, she might ovulate. Therefore, if sperm are in her oviduct, then she could get pregnant.
