A little background:
I'm only in my 3rd or so week of taking Seasonique. In the beginning I was very good about taking them at the right time, every day. Two weeks ago (10/13) I got sick with the flu (hooray H1N1!). Anyway, I was on some antibiotics (Robitussin with Codeine) which would make the pills a little less effective. Well, because I was on that plus ibuprofen, I forgot to take ~4ish BCP. Sunday came around and I was feeling great! My fever was gone and I didn't have body aches, so my SO and I decided to have sex. He didn't pull out and later that day was when I realized I hadn't been taking my pills. Since then I've been taking them, however.

Since it has been only ~9 days since intercourse I highly doubt any pregnancy symptoms can occur. I just wanted your opinions if I should stop taking the pills in case I am preggo and the chances (you think) I may be? Also, when would you suggest testing? Technically I'm not supposed to get my period for a while. I got a period about 4-5 weeks ago whenever I started my pack.

One thing SO did say to me this past weekend was "Wow! Your nipples look different" For some reason to him they looked bigger/darker. I also went to the bathroom last night and had some bright red blood on the toilet paper. Not much at all and haven't seen any since. I'm used to getting bleeding randomly with these pills but usually it's a dark red/brownish color.

Missing 4 days of pills is enough to get preggers. If I were you I would talk to my doctor about whether you should continue taking them. Also if it's been two weeks since you had the sex in question you could probably test but know that a negative might not be accurate at this time.

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!

I would go get a hpt and get a digi or a frer. What where you on antibotics for? that won't help the flu. If it was just what you mentioned those aren't antibotics. Don't stop taking your pills until you know for sure. Because if you are still having sex and you aren't pregnant, you get that way really quick. The pill isn't going to hurt the baby in early pregnancy.
