Possible pregnancy - took Minerva pill late
Please advise of the possibility of pregnancy Gynae Doc. In the first week of active pills (Minerva) I forgot to take it in the morning, but remembered to take it in the evening. I carried on taking the pills on time there-after. Could taking this one pill late have caused me to ovulate. I had unprotected sex 4 days afterwards which was 11th day in cycle. Can sperm live for 4 days? If so, I'm worried I might have conceived.

Please let me know if there is a possibility of pregnancy.
Any advise will be greatly appreciated as I am really anxious. My period is due this week and waiting is driving me crazy.
