I've been on the pill for about 2years. I missed a pill and then took one and then missed two. I then had sex on the first day of missing the two. An since that day I've been having light pink blood when I go to the toilet but not every single time. I have been having pain in my stomach aswell. Please help

Hello Angel93,
Because you missed 2 pills, didn't make up for the missed dose and had unprotected sex on that day, there is a chance of pregnancy.
A urine test can detect hCG levels about 12 to 14 days after conception. hCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy. Calculate 14 days from the day you had unprotected sex and missed two pills, then take a pregnancy test.

Hello Angel93,

The light bleeding may the result of two missed doses of birth control pills that you did not make up for.

Combination oral contraceptive pills contain a synthetic form of the female hormone, estrogen and progestin.

These synthetic hormones stabilize a woman's natural hormone levels, and prevent estrogen from peaking mid-cycle. Without the estrogen bump, the pituitary gland does not release other hormones that normally cause the ovaries to release mature eggs.

Synthetic progestin makes the uterine lining inhospitable to a fertilized egg.

By suddenly stopping the pill, you upset the hormone levels and triggered your body into starting a light menstrual flow.

Is there a chance I could be pregnant?
