Okay, so, I just started college, and part of orientation was a backpacking trip. We left on Monday morning and returned Wednesday night. Tuesday night, in my tent, I discovered that I had forgotten Monday's pill, so I took Monday's and Tuesday's right then, because it was my normal pill-taking time. Saturday morning, after we were back, I woke up and realized I had forgotten to take Friday's pill (I take my pill at 12-2 am, and I read here that a 'missed' pill is over 24 hours, and this was just about 7 or so.) Saturday afternoon, I had sex with my boyfriend without a condom and he came inside me. I took my Saturday night pill on time, which was the last one before the first of the spacer week.
I'm not entirely sure where this question falls in terms of "am I at a high pregnancy risk", so I thought I'd ask you lovely people. Thanks for your time.
Oh, and I should mention that I've been on the Pill for 2 1/2 years and been pretty damn close to a perfect user the entire time. It's just this college thing that's throwing me off.
Being a bit late on just one pill in your pack really won't compromise the effectiveness of your pill, especially when you've been taking the pill correctly for so long. So, no need to worry about pregnancy from this situation.
