I'm on Sronyx birth contol pills and thats all the protection I use during sex. I took my birth control the night before and had sex that night and the following day, I didn't take my birth control pill for two days after the night i took it(which was 3 days before i missed the two pills). I also had sex 6 times within those two days.
Could i possibly be pregnant?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The possibility of pregnancy is always there when one misses 2 or more pills and has unprotected sexual intercourse.

I would suggest you to do urine for pregnancy test or get your serum HCG levels estimated (more accurate than urine tests). The HCG (it is a hormone) levels rise only in pregnancy and its presence will confirm the status of your pregnancy. Please consult a gynecologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
