I’m on birth control pills and my boyfriend and I use condoms. Recently while we were having sex, the condom broke. I forgot to take my Pill that night, could I still get pregnant?

birth control pills

There is a slight chance you could be pregnant. You should always take a forgotten birth control pill as soon as you remember.

  1. If you miss 1 birth control pill, take it as soon as possible and then continue taking your pills at the usual time. You may take 2 pills on the same day (one at the moment you remember and the other at the regular time) or even 2 at the same time.
  2. Talk to your health care provider about whether you should use emergency contraception, especially if you missed a birth control pill during the first week of your Pill pack.
