I've been on Sprintec for 2 years or so. I'm a sunday starter and take my pill very consistently at 7pm.
My boyfriend and I had sex without a condom (I know the withdrawal method doesn't work so no need to tell me, but i'm just saying that he did pull out) yesterday(sunday) around 2pm. That was the 5th day of my period. That evening I forgot to take my pill. It's Monday now. I took my sunday starter around 3PM and took my monday pill just now(7pm).

What are the chances of pregnancy? I'm extremely low on money and can't really afford Plan B so I have my fingers crossed.

i know there are a lot of "am i pregnant" questions, and i'm sorry to bother and be one of those people, but i had to. just hoping someone will take a second to give me an actual answer and not a redirecting link to an article.


Thanks
-Kris

Hey, kristink8: did you read up about our limits with these kinds of question in the post at the top of this forum: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/27/t/027786.html

Also, do you feel like you understand the difference in your pill's effectiveness rates between typical and perfect use?

Should also mention that it's not accurate to say withdrawal doesn't work. In typical use, it's the least effective of all methods -- at somewhere between 73 - 82% effectiveness. But in perfect use, it's estimated to be around 96% effective. Again, most other methods are more effective than that in perfect use, but still, none of those percentages are anything close to 0.
