I couldn't get the prescription in time...

User Profile
I have been taking Trisprintec for about 8 months. I was supposed to start my new pill pack on a Sunday, but I couldn't get the prescription in time and I missed the first 2 pills of the pack, but made them up by taking 2 pills on Tuesday and Wednesday which got me caught back up. Other than that, I have taken my pills regularly. I had sex with my boyfriend the following Thursday and the condom broke and he ejaculated inside me. what are the possibilities of me being pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have followed the missed-pill-protocol after missing the pills, the protection from the pills should be present. If this was not your first pill pack use, the protective effect should not get affected. However, if you have missed taking 2 or more than 2 active pills and have not followed missed-pill-protocol, you can be at risk for pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods/withdrawal bleeding. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for underlying cause and confirm/rule out pregnancy if you miss your next periods or if you get abnormal bleeding, or if you develop new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy possibility.
Take care.
