I take my birth control pills on regular time everyday for the first 2 weeks on Monday my 3 week ( last week of active pills) I forgot to take my pill then had unprotected sex , came home and I took my missed pill ( this all happened on Monday) What are the chances of pregnancy?
How late did you end up taking your pill? If it was no later than 12 hours after your pill time, you don't need to worry about it compromising the effectiveness.
If it was later than that, as long as that happens no more than once per pill pack, you should still be okay. But having more than one late or missed pill in one pill pack will likely affect your protection, so you'll want to be extra careful to take the rest of them on time.
