I had my period on the 19th and ended on the 24th of February. I'm currently taking ortho tricyclen lo and I've missed some pills. According to my days app, I'm fertile between Feb. 28th and March 5th. I had unprotected sex on the 3rd and was wondering if I could get pregnant....

If you missed some pills, you could absolutely be pregnant. Today's birth control pills are very low dose so they need to be taken every day around the same time to maintain the hormone levels to prevent ovulation.

You would need to check your package insert for the pills to see when you are not safe with regard to the missed pills. It will say something like "If you miss X pills in Y week, then take two pills this day and two pills the next day" or "throw out the rest of your pack and start a new one right away, and use protection for 7 days" or something. So within those days that it says to "use protection," those are the days where you could possibly become pregnant.
