I started a new pack of pills on June 23rd, but I missed 5 pills in a row. My bf and I forgot to use protection, everyone said I should be fine because I may not have been ovulating. Can you please help me>
Unfortunately, together with the inactive pills from the previous pack you were without hormones for 12 days. Of course when you take the pill, nobody can tell when you will restart ovulation. You also do not get pregnant every time you have sex,even if you ovulate.
Unfortunately it is not possible to determine what your body did when you missed those 5 pills. After 24 hours of missing the first one, the hormone levels in your body would have been lower than what is needed to control your natural cycle. It is anybody's guess what that would have done, maybe you ovulated, maybe not. Just patience and a pregnancy test can tell.
