I take my pill at 5pm everyday. Monday I forgot to take my pill and Tuesday we had unprotected sex. I didn't realize until after midnight and took mondays pill over 24hrs late and then took tuesdays pill 7 hours late. The pill missed was from the 3rd week of active pills. I take Levora bcp levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradial .15mg/.03mg. What are the chances of becoming pregnant?

How long have you been on hormonal birth control?

This is ultimately going to be your determining factor. If it's been a number of years or several months, and you've been a good user until now, the very incidental late or missed pill isn't going to have THAT great of an effect. Either way, you've compromised your protection, but the degree to which you have is the bigger issue.

Well i have been on bc for like 7 years. And I have been on levora for a little over a year....but i have incidences like the same thing happend during the same pill pack again but i can't remember if it was week 1 or week 2...also during one of those weeks in the same pill pack I took a pill over 24hrs late and then the one from the next day a few hours late...does that increase chance of pregnancy with that information given also?
