Hi Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome! 

Anytime you have unprotected sex, you risk pregnancy. 

However, in this case, it sounds like you are not pregnant and got your breakthrough bleeding as expected. 

If you are trying to get pregnant, discontinue your use of birth control of course. I hope you have some good news soon!
