started the placebo so I could "skip" my period.

I am on Chryselle birth control. I always take it correctly, at the same time each day. I have sex frequently and use the pull out method. Last month, I started a new pack of pills where I would've started the placebo so I could "skip" my period. I usually get my period on Sunday, so I'm one day late. Could I be pregnant? My boyfriend always pulls out, and I know that's not very safe alone, but I do take my pills properly. I'll start my next pack of pills friday. Should I be worried?

Since you have been taking your BC pills regularly, it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. It can happen but is rare.

I am a little confused by your comment about starting a new pack versus taking the placebo pills in order to "skip" your period. If you are not taking the placebo pills and taking active ones instead, then you should not even have a period.

And if you have been on birth control pills, you should not need to use the pull out method. The BCP's should be protecting you from pregnancy and are much more effective than pulling out.
