This is my first time taking althea and I forgot to take the pill on the 21st day and I had a unprotected sex on the 22nd day. So I take the 21st pill on the 22nd day, is it possible for me to get pregnant?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I do not think there is any chance of getting pregnant.You have effectively managed the missed pill and this maintains the protective ability of the pack.But do not repeat it again and keep one thing in your mind,this missing pill can be a reason of an unscheduled bleeding in midcycle.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
