I am so worried.

i started my birth control pack 3 days late on january 4th (was supposed to start on the 1st). then in the first week i missed two consecutive pills but took them both the next day (took three pills in one day). Then on january 12th i had sex. If i did ovulate would it have been before the sex?

I had some heavy bleeding on the fourth day of my inactive pills that month. Bright red blood with clots. Bad cramping. Was this my period or implantation bleeding?

It is now february. i start my inactive pills today. i have some creamy white discharge (leukorrhea?), cramps, and some breast soreness.

Am I pregnant?

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Any time you do not take your pill consistently you increase your chances of getting pregnant.  Not taking the pill consistently can also cause irregular periods.

The best way to no for sure whether or not you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test.  This is really the only way to know for sure in the early stages.
