Chances of pregnancy after mission 3 birth control pills?

Patient

Q: I had unprotected sex last nite i missed 3 birth control pills on week 2 and i also missed one on week one im just starting week 3 today could i get pregnant or am i covered from taking my other ones?

Doctor

A:   Because you missed 3 birth control pills in week 2, the chances of getting pregnant is slightly increased, though it's difficult for anyone to tell. You may have to do a urine pregnancy test two week after the unprotected sex to confirm pregnancy. I hope the information helps, take care.
