Very rare , chances slim for you to get pregnant. no real worries

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

I understand you might be worried about missing a dose of your pills. I suggest you continue taking your pills as prescribed.

No need to worry for now with regards to a pregnancy, despite the lost dose. It will be very very rare in my opinion for you to get pregnant. Not impossible, but the chances are really slim.

For me, for now, no real worries with respect to a possible pregnancy. Continue taking your pills as prescribed.

Thanks and kind regards,

Dr Bain
