Soo.....I started my “period” on the 8th of February and it ended on the 13th. It was a very light period and so I was concerned and took a test which fell negative. I had unprotected sex on that Thursday the 14th and didn’t start taking my pills till that Saturday (three in a row). I then missed that Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and on Thursday I realized that I missed those days so I threw away my pack of BC; I realized all of this after my husband and I had unprotected sex. I started lightly bleeding this Friday morning and not sure if I should be concerned or not. I had sex on the 14th and not sure if this is because I missed 5 days of the pill or implantation bleeding from sex a week ago? I know it is probably just my body confused from me missing the pills; however, when I miss my pills sometimes (never 5 in a row before) my bleeding starts sooner than this. Also, when should I take a test? Should I wait when the bleeding stops or should I wait till when I am "supposed" to have my next scheduled period, which will be on March 8th. Advice please!
I've never taken BC pills but I do know its very possible to get pregnant if you miss your pills. I would think it would probably be from you missing your pills as to why your bleeding but of course I'm not a dr nor had any experience with this so i'm not sure.
I would wait until your period is due but if you want to test sooner you would 'probably' get an accurate result around 2wks after having unprotected sex. Hope this helps and good luck!
You can also check out the "Am I Pregnant" board. You might get alot more help there as well
I got pregnant with DS1 on the pill (i dont even remembering missing any but obviously something happened lol) anyways I didnt have any breakthrough bleeding. I ended up missing my period, took a test and it was +
You could just be having breakthrough bleeding because you missed so many pills, but it is definitely possible to get pregnant while on bc. I would wait for your next period to take a test, that will give you the most accurate result. Good Luck
Thank you for the replys! I wouldnt mind at all getting pregnant, but obviously we are not prepared yet...I'm sure it is just break through bleeding, in which I am not pregnant. I will wait though and still take a test when my next period is supposed to come (if I am late)
