you are on birth control and your 21 days of taking it is over and you have s_x before your period actually comes?

The pill is 99$ effective which means 1 of every 100 women will become pregnant each year while using the pill. I think your chances of getting pregnant are as slim as they get given that you had s_x at the end of the pill cycle. Still, 1 in 100... You could be the one so if you are truly concerned, use a backup method as well. Condoms will protect you from STD's while the pill will not.

Well today is only Wednesday so give it till Friday and then test. Good luck and let us know if it is positive. That could be a lesson for all.

Hi, not sure if you knew but you don't have proper periods on the pill, they are just caused by the withdrawal of the hormones in the pill on the pill-free week, so it's unlikely that you have ovulated, and with it not actually being a period it would be difficult to tell if you were pregnant using this as a sign (stay with me, I'm starting to confuse myself because I can't pick the right words to explain!) Anyway the day on which you start bleeding can change (as you said yours is either Tues or Wed) Over 3 years mine went from Thursdays to Saturdays. Maybe this is happening. It would be too early to tell at the moment if you were pregnant, so I would suggest for your peace of mind wait 2 weeks and do a test at the doctors, even if you have started bleeding because as I said, with being on the pill, this wouldn't be a sign anyway. I very much doubt you are if you have taken the pill correctly (I noticed I did start bleeding later if I took mine late) as E said the chances are slim. Good luck.
