I have a 28 day period cycle. I have been taking pills for two years. I had sex on day 4 and day 6 of my cycle. The problem is that I forgot to take one pill. What is the possibility of pregnancy here? I am worried. Please help.
If you have had sex on day 4 and 6 of period, then there is no chance of pregnancy as there is no ovulation. After every cycle day 1 (including the first day of period) to day 10 is safe period and that is because, there is no ovulation and hence, no ovum released. So, relax and do not worry.
Thank you very much. What scares me is that I am taking contraceptive pills and I have read that if I forget one during the first seven pills, then the risk is too high. Is that true?
You have missed just a pill and hope you have continued to take the subsequent pills later. So, it is not a big problem as you are projecting it to be.
Whatever be the situation ovum will take at least a week's time to grow. Ovum formation does not cause pregnancy, but the rupture and fertilization of the ruptured ovum with the sperms do cause pregnancy.
Please do not worry and continue taking the medication as before. Wait for your next periods date and get back to me that time.
I am sure that you will get your periods. But, do not miss your further pills and take proper contraceptive measures to avoid pregnancy.
