    Default Missed mini pill and unprotected sex help

    I started on Microlut (mini pill) on March 1st. I was taking them at 9:30am every day for the first few days but managed to miss a few here and there. Easy to do with two other children!
    I had my period on the 9th of March and it lasted about 3 days. I'm unsure of my cycle length since I had my last baby but I'm sure I had a period in February.

    My partner come home from work and we had unprotected sex on days 23 and 24 of March. Which I realised may be mid cycle!! I missed about 5 pills around that time. Plus others here and there.
    I'm guessing my next period is due around the 9th of March..

    What's the chances of getting pregnant missing the mini pill? I'm not concerned as we would absolutely love to have another baby.

    It's obviously too soon to have symptoms but I have had headaches, nausea, upset stomach and fatigue. I knew with my other 2 children that I was pregnant over a week before a test would show.. maybe a little nervous and paranoid but super excited.

    Any thoughts ladies x

    Why not go and get a blood test from your gp ? Are you still taking the pill ? Maybe think about other means till you find out the results as taking the pill whilst pregnant is not advisable

    However even if you have taken the pill there is no evidence that it can lead to complications whilst in early pregnancy

    The mini pill needs to be taken at the same time every day to be effective. If you miss one then you need another form of protection for the next 7 days.

    Missing that many would mean it probably had little effect. So yes there is a pregnancy chance.
