Red Spotting

This may be lengthy but I am just a curious person!

I have been on the BC pill for about a year and a half. I am 11 days into my new pack, so I have 10 days until my placebo week.

Week three on my previous pack (days 15-21) I missed 2 pills after sex using the pull-out method. Since then I have been taking pregnancy tests about every week because I know what is possible.

All 3 tests have been negative, I just took one a few minutes before posting this. Therefore, if it has been over three weeks since the sex and my tests are continuously negative, I don't think I am pregnant.

However, today I experienced some bright red spotting. I didn't think this was implantation spotting. I only had sex once since I started my new pack and it was Friday the 21st. Today, the 25th is when I experienced the spotting. Is it possible that this is implantation bleeding from my most recent sex? It has only been 4 days since the sex and I have read that implantation spotting usually occurs 7-10 days after ovulation/conception.

It simply does not add up because had I ovulated 7-10 days ago, wouldn't my egg already be dead by the time I had my most recent sex? PS with the particular sex, there was no ejaculation inside me.

I was just wondering if this could be implantation spotting or just some breakthrough spotting.

I have been taking my pill impeccably this month.

Thank you!

hi there..just wondering if you could help me.

i am using Meliane and today i noticed that i have some spot on my undies..! been using birth control pill and this is the first time i have experienced this. i only have 1 pill left and will end tomorrow. i have been cured for an infection for 7 days for the co amoxiclav brand of medicine then 5 days for the metronidazole. i have just finished the medicines last friday the 13th of this month. the spotting is light red and still experiencing it. i can feel a very light pain when urinating.it feels like you're having a wound somewhere in your private area.

is it just the possible effect of the pill and medicines or should i worry for something else?

thank you so much...

Just to respond to your questions, yes I made the pills up (2 one day, 2 the next) until I caught up with my pack. Thank you for the reassurance, that makes me feel better!
