i was taking lo estrin fe for two months then had to switch to junel fe because of insurance problems. i finished my last pack of lo estrin had a period then started my first pack on junel i waited about 5 five days before having sex again but didn't use condoms but my boyfriend pulled out each time. i didn't miss any pills at all but missed my period for the first month on the new pills i figured it was because of switching the pills now i am almost at the end of my second week of the second month on junel and am feeling funny. i was wondering the chances of being pregnant even though i have not missed any pills and take them the exact same time daily. thanks

When you started the new type of pill, did you start taking it when you would have started taking the next pack of Loestrin? If you did, then your protection shouldn't have been affected, but no method of birth control is 100% effective so taking a pregnancy test would be a good idea.
