Q: Could I get pregnant if I miss my birth control pill?

A: Any time you miss your pill there is a chance you get pregnant. Your chances getting pregnant increase if you miss a birth control pill or take one at the wrong time, though it's not a 100% chance. Part of the risk depends on when you missed the pill, when you took your next pill and what your health is like. If you miss one pill you should take it as soon as you remember it. You can usually take up to two doses at a single time. (Check with your doctor).
