Ok so I know everyone keeps asking the same old questions but I havent found a question that fits my story. So I just got married WHooo Hooo!! And I have been taking my pills everyday. Now since my schedule has changed I really havent taken them the same time everyday. Well on top of that on our honeymoon I forgot to bring them, We didnt have sex that night since we were both exhausted but the next two days we did and of course he didnt pull out and I didnt have my pills. So the next day we got home and that night I started myy period. I had a 7 day period and decided to start over when I finished, well that didnt happen, I took the next day pill in the same pack and again the next day. We didnt have sex those days. Well we had some family issues and I just forgot about anything and everything so I didnt take the pills for the next two days. And we had sex on both days and he didnt pull out. The next day I took two pills..No signs or symptoms of pregnancy but this just isnt the time. I think I am going to go on the shot because being married has changed my daily routine and I cantt seem to remeber to take it. In all of this, could I be prego??

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Birth control pills are an effective method of contraception but only if taken correctly and consistently.Also after starting these pills for the first seven days an additional contraceptive is to be used as they are effective after a week.
Since you have been taking them irregularly they would not be effective in preventing pregnancy.
A woman can conceive between 9 to 16 days of her cycle(fertile period) considering the first day of the menstrual cycle as day one and the cycles being regular.If you had unprotected intercourse during the fertile period chances of getting pregnant are there.

Hope this helps
Take Care!
