is there any way I could be pregnant?

I missed almost a week of birth control pills. During the time that I missed the pills, I was having unprotected sex and letting him go in me. We started having sex on Monday and then on the following monday, I began to bleed heavily. It was a bright red and with absolutely no clots. Could this have been withdrawal bleeding? I bled for three days, all bright red and then it abrubtly stopped. Does this mean that I am absolutely not pregnant? And could I have ovulated after missing so many pills considering I only took 2 pills in one whole week?

Hi McHammer,

Since you had a period, it is pretty unlikely that you are pregnant. I always tell women that if you still believe you might be, take a pregnancy test for a piece of mind - that usually helps. If you continue to miss your pills and have unprotected sex, you have a high risk of pregnancy therefore, you should always use condoms for a backup method of protection.

I hope this helps.

Hi Jess,

Pregnancy tests are pretty accurate these days. I would assume you are not pregnant since the testing was negative. The next best thing would be to make an appointment with your doctor for blood testing which would be even more accurate. I hope this helps.
