When my husband and I were going together we used the withdrawal method and natural planning; no problems, except an occasional late period. After we were married we used mostly natural planning. When we finally decided to have children, no problems getting pregnant the first time. Our 2nd son was totally unplanned and the boys are 17 months apart!

I’ve been on birth control for 2 months now and my husband and I currently went on a trip and I forgot my pills at home. I missed about 3 days of the pill and we had unprotected sex. I am wondering how likely it is for me to get pregnant.
