I am 22 years old and my fiance is 37 years old. I just started taking birth control on November 3rd, 2010, and not mainly for purposes of preventing pregnancy but to get my period on track. I have been irregular since July and my periods decide to just "pop" up sometimes. My length between cycles ranges between 13-29 days. Horrible! Anyway, I started the pill on the 3rd and have been sexually active.
November 3rd - First birth control pill, unprotected sex, pull out method.
November 9th - Missed Pill
November 10th - Missed Pill
November 11th - Missed Pill / Unprotected Sex / Pull Out Method, But Questionable
November 12th - Started Breakthrough Bleeding / Took 3 missed pills
November 13th - Continued pill - still bleeding
November 16th - Bleeding stopped
Although if pregnancy occurs, there really is no fear, but more of an anxious period. I have continued to take my pill regularly, it's only been a few days, but I just started the pack. I am simply just requesting advice on when I may be able to tell if I have conceived due to my forgetfulness and my prior irregularities I cannot tell about my ovulating period. Prior to this breakthrough bleeding, I was on on my period:
September 14-September 19
September 28-October 1st
October 27-November 2nd
Breakthrough Bleeding started: November 12th (which was just a few days ago, but missed 3 pills, on my first pack ever, 4 occurrences of unprotected sex, one of which was on the day of my 3rd missed pill.
Discussed possibility with fiance, and he says if it happens it happens, if it doesn't, it doesn't. I'm mostly more anxious/curious than anything. Please feel free to advise.
