Is pregnancy possible if one misses birth control pills?

i have been taking BC for 9 days (started 2 thurdays ago). friday i took it normally, then and saturday my bf cummed in me. i forgot to take it my pill on saturday and i just found out i forgot today so i took 2 pills. how could happen? the instructions said if i miss only one pill i just need to take it as soon as i remember but i dont need a to take a backup method if i have sex.

and should i take emergency contraception along with the two pills i just took or is that like not going to help?

Thanks for sharing your health concern with us. I have gone through your query and would like to offer my opinion. If you have been using the pills for more than six months, if you missed one pill and made it up, your cycle is safe. However, if you missed two pills in a row, especially during the second and third weeks, you need additional protection even though you completed the course. You can go for an emergency pill, but, please remember that your hormone milieu gets jeopardized for quite some time. Hope this helps.
