Pregnant after no pills for 2 weeks ?

I've been on ortho tri cyclen lo for about a yr and a half I gave my body a rest in feb, so in July I started a pack, but went on vacation and forgot my pills so I haven't taken any in or over 2weeks I had unprotected sex a couple of times where my husband came in me. But a day before or after can't remember I had a slimy clear sticky like discharge was that ovulation and could I be pregnant or am I still covered by the pills meaning it takes longer than 2weeks before it actually leaves the system?

Welcome to ehealthforum

The pills provide protection against pregnancy till the time they are taken regularly.As soon as you had stopped them contraceptive effect would not be there and possibility of pregnancy is present.
Regarding the discharge it cannot be commented without knowing the phase of cycle.
Wait for few weeks.If you are having periods and they are missed consider doing a Urine HPT done and visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
