I've been birth control for 3 months now. I started my period last week Feb 7 and I stopped on Feb 12th. On Feb 14th and the 16th on boyfriend and I had unprocted sex. After we had sex Monday Feb 16th I stopped taking the pill. Today is Feb 20th in this morning I woke up to get ready for school in it showed a light pink when I wiped but I haven't had it happen since after that today. I seen my doctor yesterday for a check up on how the pill was doing an its been working fine. Now I'm worried why is it when I wiped this morning it was light pink. Could I be pregnant?

Hello sugar1019,

You post that you have been using birth control pills for three months.

When you finished your period on February 12, did you start a new pack on February 13? If you did, then you were protected when you had sex on February 14 and 16.

Why did you stop taking your birth control pills on February 16? Did you tell your doctor that you stopped taking the pills?

The pink spotting could be because you stopped taking the pills and caused breakthrough bleeding.

If you do not take your birth control pills at the same time every day and are sexually active, you will become pregnant.

I stopped taking it because I ran out I needed a refill on it thats why I went to see my doctor yesterday for a check up on how my test came out an to get a new refill on my birth control pills. I just hate the fact I'm on it again this weekend when I just got off of it last week. Thank you very much I wasnt sure what to think with all this an not ask someone whats going on before I have to break it to him that I might me pregnant. But from what you told me I see where you are coming from and it makes since thank you again.
