I am currently taking the pill trycyclin lo! I have been talking different kinds of birth control for 5 years now ! Often forgetting to take them! I never have a secduled time when I take them during the day the whole time I have been on them! I recently forgot to take my pill and my partner came inside me! I calculated my ovulation online and it was during those days when I missed my pill and when he came inside me!? I know it's always possiable to get pregnant if the sperm enters your vigina. BUT i am wondering if because of being on the pill will I even ovulate each month!? HELP!!

If you're on the pill, you actually do NOT have ovulation cycles anymore, so whatever you found online was incorrect (not that online ovulation calculators are ever really accurate anyhow). That's how the pill works- it stops ovulation.

That said, though, if you're constantly forgetting pills your protection may have been compromised. Check the pamphlet that came with your pills to see what it says about this- since you haven't specified how many you've missed (and if you took them when you remembered), we can't really answer your question specifically. However, I'm inclined to think that if it's been less than 5 days since this incident, you may need to obtain EC.

Birth control pills don't work if you don't take them every day around the same time. If you can't take them correctly, perhaps you should consider a different method of birth control- ie, condoms, as an example, which are cheap, simple, and easy to remember to use.
