I forgot to take my pills 3 days in a row, got back on them, and 5 days later had sex without a condom. Is there a chance I could be pregnant?

Carrie, There is a very small chance. You should wait 7 days before you allow a man to ejaculate inside you when you miss pills like this.

After 5 days the pills should be pretty effective, although not 100%

Best of luck!

There IS A CHANCE, NOT a very small one. It is possible but uncertain whether missing your pills could have caused you to ovulate. I would suggest taking emergency contraception as soon as possible. This should be available to you at any drugstore.
