Okay so here is what happened. I missed the last active pill before the 1 week of non active pills. I was sexually active that day. I took the remaining active pill the next day and then followed through with the non active pills. Am I at risk of being pregnant?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Missing the last active pill and making it up does not put you at risk of pregnancy unless this was your first pack of birth control pill use. You are not protected until you start with second pack of pills after first pack and periods. If this pack was not your first pack and you have taken all the active pills as scheduled (without missing them), then you are not at risk of pregnancy
