So, I've been taking my pills in the morning, so I don't forget them.

But, this morning...well, I forgot.

I take them at 7 am. It's now 4:30 pm.

The last time my boyfriend and I had sex was on Saturday. And he ejaculated inside me...Friday, I think.

What's the chance that I could become pregnant now that it's Thursday and has almost been a week?

Did you take the pill as soon as you remembered? If you did, then while it's late, you didn't miss it completely And based on that amount of time since your last sexual activity? Not a very high pregnancy risk, and so we wouldn't advise emergency contraception. Still, if you need peace of mind, take a test in two weeks or when you hit the last week of pills.

It's okay. People forget. Don't beat yourself up too much. [Smile]

haha, Yes. I took one look at the kitchen table, didn't remember taking it, and popped the pill package open as fast as I could.

Thanks for the peace of mind. :]]]]]]
