Late on Birth Control?..


Q: Today is Monday, so Saturday and Sunday I took my birth control late. Saturday I took its really late, I usually take it around 6-7 am and I took it around 9 pm. Sunday I only took it a few hours late. I began spotting Sunday and I figured it was because I took Saturday pill so late. So today, monday, I took my pill on time.
I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend today. Should I be worried about getting pregnant?
Ive been on my birth control Microgestine 1.5/30 for around 2 1/2 years. Just last month my Pharmacy Gave me the generic version of it Larin FE 1.5/30. So I've been on the generic stuff going on 2 months now. I'm almost never late taking them. Just happened to be busy this weekend and forgot about it.
