I have been on birth control for about 3 years now. Well in dec I missed two pills but made them up. (dec 14,15,16) well dec 17th I started spotting. I spotted all the way up till dec 30th. The blood was never normal like a period. I went to the doctor and they said I had bv which is a bacteria infection. They put me on these pills for 7 days and told me to stop taking the birth control. I stopped taking them about a week or two b4 I started the pills because the doctors wanted to wait for tests to come back and c what was going on. Well I did have protective sex twice (used condoms) if I were to still b on my pills and not had any proba I would have started this past Wednesday or Thursday and didn't so wondering should I b worried?

I stopped taking my birth conTrol pills like at the end of the month of dec because I was having sharp pains doctors said I had a bacteria infection, they put me on anti biotics I started taking them Jan 11-17 if I was still on birth control I would have started my period Jan 25 or 26. I didn't start tho. I had protective sex the 23 and 25 th tho. Should I b worried I'm pregnant or my body just hasn't regulated FROM me quitting the birth control and taking the anti biotics.... IM FREAKING OUT PLEASE HELP ME

No I didn't start back on the birth control I was going to wait until I started my period. I was on those anti biotics for 7 days cuz the doctors said the bleeding from dec 17- 30 was from a bacteria infection. I was supposed to start Jan 25 or the 26 th if I was still on my birth control. I had pro receive sex the 23 and the 25 but we uses protection. So is my period just late because of the anti biotics or cuz I quit the pills? Or what???

Hi Little1991,

Sometimes things like skipping pills and taking medications can stop your period or cause a change. SInce you did both, this is a normal expectancy. If it has been more than two weeks since you had sex and you'd like to be sure that you're not pregnant, you can take a pregnancy test. 

Continue taking your pills and your period should regulate itself by the end of this pill cycle.

Good luck,
