Does having unprotected sex when a birth control pill is missed increse the chance of pregnancy ?

Hi I started taking the Diane pill 8 days ago after having the Mirena IUD removed. Out of the 8 days I missed day 3 but kept on taking daily after that. I had unprotected sex this morning on day 8. I should be ok right? I have not had my period in years due to having the IUD.. :) I was lucky!!!

You have not mentioned your age & menstrual pattern before IUD.

IUD does not cause stoppage of periods So your amenorrheoa these days needs investigations & treatment ,though you have less chances of conception this time (8th day sex)

welcome to healthcare magic forum
you must not miss it as it have high failure rate ,if given in this way
it is now not 100 % protective
there is chance of pregnancy .
wait until next menstruation and do pregnancy test .
IUD give protection when they are inserted ,once you remove it ,it is ineffective .

i hope i answered your question
