I've been on birth control for many years now. a few weeks ago i missed 3 pills in a row. i have never missed 3 in a row before. i was wondering, what are the chances i may have become pregnant, if i had sex on one or two of the days i didn't take the pill and missed 3 pills in a row? The major difference i feel, is being overly tired these past couple weeks. even though i havn't done anything that would make me so tired... and my tummys been kind cramped up. these could also be cause i have a cold coming on, because it's that time of year. any ideas on the situation?

The instructions for the pill im familiar with say this.

Miss 3 pills or more
If you miss three (3) or more active pills (pink) in a row during any week:
If you are a Day 1 Starter: THROW OUT the rest of the pill pack and start a new pack that same day
If you are a Sunday Starter: Keep taking 1 pill every day until Sunday. On Sunday, THROW OUT the rest of the pack and start a new pack of pills that same day
You MAY BECOME PREGNANT if you have sex in the seven days after you restart your pills. You MUST use another birth control method (such as condoms or spermicides) as a backup for those 7 days
You may not have your period this month, but this is expected. However, if you miss your period two months in a row, call your healthcare provider or clinic because you might be pregnant

So It's indeed a possibility than... except that i didn't do any of that i just took the ones i missed. is that a bad thing or would that be fine you think?

Google your pills name. You should be able to find your instructions on the manufacturer site. That's the best way to find out what you should have done, and what you have to do in the future if you miss a pill again. Basically it looks like missing three pills in a row removes protection for at least the next 7 days. You may just be pregnant.
