If you’ve been taking your birth control pills regularly over the past 30 days, then it would be very difficult to become pregnant. Even if you forgot to take your birth control pill one day, you should still be fine. If, however, you forgot to take your pill two days, then your probability for being able to get pregnant while on birth control dramatically increases.
As far as taking Plan B, it’s most effective to take that within 12 hours of having sex. The longer you wait, the higher the chance that Plan B (or any other emergency contraceptive) will not work.
