I am 17 and I was on Ortho-Tricyclene for about a year and a half. Around Christmas my prescription ran out and I couldn't call one in because my Gyno was closed for the holidays. I got my period on December 29th and about a week or two after that, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, but he pulled out. My period was very very irregular before the birth control, like it would always be a few weeks late. It is 4 or 5 days late now and I'm a bit scared since I have been used to it being regular from the birth control. What are my chances of being pregnant?

You have a moderate to high risk of being pregnant. If your period is late, which it is, you can take a pregnancy test.

This is what I'd advise, and then we can go on from there. But at this point, there's no use speculating when you can know right now, and the sooner you know, the better.

For future reference, withdrawal is NOT a birth control method. And your pill would have no effect at that point, either.

Please take a pregnancy test and get back to us, so we can be of more help.

Babe, I know it's hard, but try not to feel so bad. We all do stuff that we regret; now you just have to take it one step at a time from here. [hugs]

The abortion pill is Mifeprex; the website is http://www.mifeprex.com .

Planned Parenthood has information on medical abortion and Mifeprex here: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/ABORTION/medicalabortion.html

Remember, though, that you just have to take the pregnancy test and find out, though. You may not be pregnant.

We're definitely here for you no matter what, though. Take care.
