This is a very stupid question and i regret not being more responsible when it comes to sexual intercourse and birth control, but heres my question
so im only 19 years old, i've been on birth control for about 6 months now, (alesse 28 pack) and i was taking it fine as usual, then i started my inactive pills on march 12 for 7 days, had a normal period, everything was normal. I started my next pack on the 19th, had intercourse on the 21st and 24th. then about a week later on sunday night (march 26) i started bleeding. At first i thought this might be normal since it was a little bit but monday morning it turned into a period like bleeding. it wasnt strong but it wasnt light ethier. it was about 1 pad a day kind of bleeding. on monday morning when i realized i was still bleeding I was a bit worried so i check to make sure that i hadnt missed any pills or anything weird like that. turns out i did. I missed one within that week but i had no idea which day, i cant even think of a possible day. i thought i had taken all my pills well. so i took 2 pills that day. since im very dumb, i still decided to have sex that week that i was bleeding, i assumed because i doubled up on pills i would be fine so i had intercourse on the 28th and 30th while i was still slightly bleeding. My period continued for a week, until finally on April 4th I decided to go to the gyn. He asked me if i had missed a pill and that i might have ovulated and could get pregnant due to that. It was a bit frightening that he said that so I kind of lied. i said i dont think i missed a pill. in the end no results really came out since i basically lied which i regret. he just said it might be a fluke and to just keep taking my pills normally and see him in 3 weeks time. I was scared so I took a pregnancy test right after the visit. it came out negative. even now its been over a week and im still bleeding, its not as heavy now its super light, but what im scared about is that my actual period is suppose to come in 3 days again. i dont even know what to say i shouldve been more careful considering im 19 and my boyfriend is 21 and we both arent ready and dont want to have a kid right now.
