I'm new to this so please bare with me.
I have been on birth control since I was 18 I'm 28 now. I had my c ycle end last month on July 20.. I missed 5 pills in a row, stupid i know but my mind has been everywhere, I'm technically not supposed to get my period until next week august 14th or so.. but today is the 10th n I have some bleeding. Now during the time of missed pills I did have unprotected sex. so im wondering If i could become pregnant. Never had a period a week early.. any suggestions would help.

Hi anon28,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Definitely, If you had unprotected sex during those days you missed your pills, your chances are there.  The bleeding might be due to your period, not every cycle is the same. You might want to take a pregnancy test during the time your period is due.

Here are some resources for you
