I stopped taking the pill mid packet two days ago because I've been having a lot of palpations and wanted to see if the pill was causing them so decided to stop the pill for a month. I had sex the same day as I stopped the pill so Is there a risk of pregnancy now?

Your protection stops on the day you stop taking the pill.
sperm can live for up to 5 days inside you after sex so there is the possibility of falling pregnant.
