question regarding contraceptive pills
My girlfriend started taking the contraceptive pill, Marvelon, on 17th Jan and finished the pack on 6th Feb, 21 days. Then we had sex last time on 14th Feb, which is supposed to be the date when she start taking the second pack. However, she forgot and took the pill on 15th instead. Would there be the possibility of her getting pregnant?

JC, there is a theoretical possibility that she might fall pregnant as the most dangerous pills to skip are the first couple in the pack. Good luck.
