Missed pill, is pregnancy possible?

Patient: I am on the pill and am in the third week. I missed one pill on during the second week. I had unprotected sex three days later. I got my period that night. Can I be pregnant?

 

 

Doctor: Since you have missed just one pill, the chances of becoming pregnant are minimal. However, if you miss your period afte r this cycle of birth control pills then you may do a home pregnancy test. I hope this helps, take care.
