Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
The chances of being pregnant are high.
In your situation that forgot the oral contraceptives for a week ,you should have used emergency contraceptives ex plan B.

Hi Doc, i would like to ask again if I have the chance of getting pregnant. I am on my 11th day of taking my althea birth control pills. I may have 2-3hours of delays in drinking my pills but I never missed taking one. My boyfriend and I had unprotectd sex last night. He told me that he did not ejaculated inside me. By the way. I am having a PCOS.

hello, i started my birth control on jan 1st, but my fiance came inside me several times during the first week. there is a good chance that i was ovulating during this week, as the medicine had not yet had time to kick in. lately i have been very emotional, with sore breasts ocasionally, nausea, the munchies. I was supposed to start my period yesterday, but all i have had is a light pinkish color when i wipe with very slight cramps. i am constipated and very bloated, causing me to pee more than usual. What do you think my chances of actually being pregnant are? Should i take a test, or not worry about it?
