Birth Control Help!!


Q: So i have been on low-ogestrel tablets 28's which is the off brand for lo-ovral. I have been on this birth control for 6 months now and I have never missed a pill i just have occasionally lost track of time and end up taking it a little later but I always take it for that day. On June 1st I had unprotected sex which is dumb I know, but I started my period about 6 hours later i am also not sure if he ejaculated inside of me…Sorry for the gross details. Also during this time I was on day 6 of the reminder pills. It has now now been 2 weeks since the incident and I took a pregnancy test this week and it came back negative. So this is where my questions come from. When on low-ogestrel do you ovulate at all? If so when do you know if you are ovulating? What are the chances that I could now be pregnant? Is it to soon to take a pt? Sorry for all of the questions it's just i hate asking questions at the doctors office because I feel stupid.
