Irregular periods: Irregular bleeding is very common. One or two days of midcycle bleeding does not usually mean much. You should take a pregnancy test next week since you had unprotected intercourse. See you doctor of birth control if the test is negative and you do not want to be pregnant.

Home pregnancy test : Most home pregnancy tests can pick up pregnancy at time of missed menses. If positive, seek gyn to confirm intrauterine pregnancy and not an ectopic pregnancy, which can be potentially life threatening.
