I'm on my second cycle of reclipsen and i missed thursday, friday and saturday of my first week as well as sunday of my second week. I took a pill on monday. I had unproteced sex on friday 2/18/2011. Thi evening I noticed brown discharge, does this mean i should expect my menstrual or is there a chance that I can be pregnant. The purpose of me taking birth control is to regulate my cycle, please share your thoughts and advice.

Ni again Nena

Good luck to you in trying to conceive. I know that IVF is incredibly expensive, it's a shame.

Keep having sex and chart your monthly calendar so you never miss ovulation. I think it's great you're trying "the old fashioned way" before considering IVF again but it's good to know that it's there when you need it.

I really hope you both have some great news for us soon; I'll be checking in for a happy update from you! Just keep patient and positive, even though it's probably very annoying to hear that when you're trying to hard and dealing with such a frustrating issue.

Please let us know again if there is any way we can help or support you!

We are trying to concieve. I stopped taking my birth control pills the week that is calculated as my fertile week. We had unprotected sex twice during this week in hopes that we do concieve. We have tried IVF twice and no sucess, so we decided to try the old fashion way before deciding to do IVF for the last time. It has been a very difficult journey for us, my husband is a parapalegic from the waist down and he does not have a high sperm count, this is why we are trying every way that is possible.

Hi nena_1178

Thanks for your post! Your bleeding may be withdrawal bleeding that comes from missing so many pills. It is not an indicator of pregnancy. However, since you have missed so many pills, pregnancy is always a risk.

It sounds like with so many missed pills, alongside unprotected sex - you might secretly want to become pregnant?! If this is the case, simply talk to your partner about things and if he is agreeable, then come off the pill and try for pregnancy.

If you are trying to avoid pregnancy then talk to your doctor about another method as the Pill is probably not the best choice for you.

Best of luck!
