So i was a couple hours late on taking my pill last week. My boyfriend and I had sex on the day I missed my pill and once more since then. I've noticed I've been breaking out more and today I noticed my breasts really hurt and are veiny near my areolas. I also feel like cramps that are similar to period cramps but not as bad and occasionally I feel like a clenching or twitching feeling where I would get period cramps. Is it possible I could be pregnant from being late one night??

Having used the pill for years, here's what I know. The hormones stay in your body even if you miss one or two completely, as long as you've been taking the others regularly. Combined pills like Microgynon trick your body so you don't release an egg reach month, so there was probably nothing to fertilise anyway. And the actual window to get pregnant is about 2 days big, so the chances of you having sex at the right time aren't absolute.
So being a couple of hours late with one pill is unlikely to result in pregnancy. That said, it's not 100% effective so I would test for pregnancy or see your GP and explain.
