Hi, So i'm on the birth control pill, and generally my bf and I use condoms as well, but this month we haven't about 3 times. He always pulls out, but I just noticed (by counting) that I must have missed a pill this month. ( i don't remember missing one?) So i took two tonight. Anyway, i'm freaking out, could I be pregnant? I'm right in the middle of finals, worse time for this. PLz help. Thank you

Because you're not sure when the pill was missed (and thus didn't make it up the day of or the day after it was missed) you're going to be closer to the typical use effectiveness ratings, which is 92%. The stress can actually cause your period to come late, so the best thing to do is try and relax and focus on what you need to for finals. If your period is late (which it may be given the stress from finals alone) then you can go ahead and take a test (or 10-14 days after the last time you had sex that posed a pregnancy risk).
