Hi Had my period but when restarting my pills after my pill free week I started two days later. I started taking my pills on the 3rd day of the first week but had sex with my partner after my period had finished before taking the new strip of pills. What are the odds of me becoming pregnant?

I would think unlikely, but possible. women usually ovulate around 14 days after the first day of your period, so a few days either side of that is your most fertile time. I think it takes a few days for you to be protected again after missing the pill, and sperm can live up to 5 days, so if you ovulated early, or you ovulate at a different time in the cycle to what is common, then it is reasonably possible but still unlikely.
The morning after pill works for up to 72 hours, and can be got at chemists if you are still within that time scale and are not wanting a pregnancy.
