Hi Anna

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

As you have taken two pills that you missed , there are low chances that you could be pregnant.But , it is better to follow another contraceptive method like barrier method to attain efficient contraception.

I advise you to check your safe period and have a barrier method (like a male condom or female condom) while having intercourse.

Take care.

Dr. Alisha,
hi anna.. you have done a correct thing by taking two pills after missing pills for two days.. nothing to worry.. you wil not get pregnant if you continue to take pills at scheduled days.. but for your satisfaction i advice you to get one pregnancy test done which can be done by yourself by using a pregnancy kit at home.. which is available at medical shop.. follow instructions over the prenancy kit its very easy n reliable.. but do the test atleast 10 days after you have missed the dose.. n try avoiding oc pills as they have many side effects like liver cancer, thromboembolism,cancer of genital tractn n heart complications.. so i advice you to go for some alternative contraceptive methods.. i hope this wil be helpful to you.. take care..

I began taking the contraceptive pill Ava 30 ED on the third day of my period. I continued taking it for seven days but it wasn t at exactly the same time on each of these seven days. Some days a took it maybe two-three hours early or late. I then had intercourse without a condom after taking my 7th pill. I continued taking the pill as normal from that day only I m sure to take it at exactly the same time. Is there a chance I am pregnant?

Iam taking gracial ( combined oral contraceptive) and started my next pack one day late as i took my first pill from the current pack on the 8th pill free break day instead of the 7th and had intercourse after taking the pill on the 8th .took the forgotten 7th day pill on the 9th day (two pills that day) . Will starting the subsequent pack one day late increase the risk of pregnancy or am I protected as long as I took the forgotten pill?

I take the contraceptive pill yaz 24+4. I finished my placebo pills and started taking the new pills on Friday 9th of February. I still dont have my period yet and I took two pregnancy tests which already came up negative. Over the last month I have been regularly taking the following medication: Paracetamol with codeine , Imigran, domperidon, tylenol and something else for heartburn. Is it possible this combination has affected my cycle? (the medicine has been because I suffered a concussion about 5 weeks ago which had long lasting side effects) Thanks and Regards

Dear Doctor,

I am using contraceptive pills for years and I after a break, I am changing brand and starting to use Microgynon. As I have moved to China, I bought these pills - same, but another brand, chinese one (levonorgestrel 0,15mg and ethinyloestradiol 0,03mg) and it has 22 pills that should be taken from the 5th day of the period and again wait for 5th day of the next period for another package. This is confusing to me and I'm not sure when does the protection start, so I am wondering can I start to take them as we do it on the West - 21 days from the 1st day of period + 7 days break? Thank you
