I took one bc pill then stopped cause i it drained my energy and was too tired to run around after my two year old daughter, five days later i had unprotected sex and my boyfriend (cum in me) i started bleeding the next day (2 Weeks before my period is due) and then had unprotected sex again that night, i am still bleeding two days later but is it possible to have gotten pregnant?

Hi Curiouse

Any time you have unprotected sex you risk pregnancy, so the short answer is yes, you can become pregnant this way. However, during your period is the least likely time to become pregnant, so comparing that to say, unprotected sex during ovulation, your chances are much lower.

If you are not ready to raise another child, I suggest you use protection. Good luck and thank you for writing.

Yes thank you will definetly be more carful now i discontinued taking the bc, just another question if i had withdrawal bleeding do i start my 28 day count from the first day that started because i normally get my period every 28 days (But my period wasn't due for another two weeks before i had withdrawal bleeding) Does that make sence?

Hello Again, Curiouse

Yes, I would start from the new date, but keep in mind that going on and off the pill may make your cycles a little irregular for a while until your hormones get back on an even keel.

Good luck.
