I would like to know.. Is it possible to still be pregnant if you missed 3 pills during the last week of your box of pills and had unprotected sex right before? I have a very light flow right now and for about 2 days of forgetting my pill I had those big mega killing cramps on the left side of my lower abdomen. I did read somewhere that it is possible to have your period and still be pregnant.. it this true? And also I was wondering if starting your FIRST box of birth control 2 weeks or maybe a bit less after your last day of period could be bad and raise the chances of being pregnant? I read somewhere once again that it could and also it could form two eggs in you... once again is this true? Thank you for answering my questions :)

P.s: The bleeding started today only. Not when I forgot those pills.

Hi Anonymous!

Thanks for your question. It looks like you are experiencing break through bleeding from withdrawing from the pill which means pregnancy shouldn't be an issue.

Just bear in mind that you are now at risk for pregnancy since you are no longer actively taking the pill so take precautions until you can settle on what kind of birth control you wish to use.

I hope this helps you and let us know if you have any more questions!
