If I'm on birth control and have had unprotected sex...I have not missed any pills but my period is extremely light...could I be pregnant?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome!

If you take birth control pills as directed, as never miss a pill, then it's not "unprotected sex" (at least against pregnancy, it IS unprotected against disease/infection) then your chances of getting pregnant are extremely low.

Your light period is due to the fact that most women on birth control pills have the added benefit of lighter periods.

I hope this eases your mind a little!
