Can you get pregnant after

Can you get pregnant after missing your oral contraceptives for seven days? You bet! Some women get pregnant after only missing one pill.

To reduce your risk of pregnancy, never miss a pill. If you take the mini-pill, be sure to take it at the exact same time each day. If you had sex during the time you stopped taking the Pill, have a pregnancy test as soon as your period is even one day late. Anytime you miss a pill use a back-up method and consult your doctor or pharmacist for instructions.

Best of luck!
