Should be okay: sometimes, some people can get breakthrough bleeding while on their pill and they can confuse that for a period. as long as you take a pregnancy test and it is negative, you should be fine. If the bleeding keeps on happening irregularly and unpredictably, you might want to consider a different kind of birth control pill with a higher amount of estrogen. Hope that helps, good luck! ...Read more

Can do a preg. test: Maybe not pregnant, but one can do a pregnancy test to be sure. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

Significant chances: Between the timing in your cycle and the missed pills, there is certainly a chance of pregnancy. You should take a pregnancy test, at home or in your local medical facility. A urine test typically can be positive after a week (since the unprotected sex) and a blood pregnancy test can be positive after 3 days. It would be wise to abstain from sex until you know your pregnancy status for sure. ...Read more

I took diane 35 as ec pill for the first time in my life taking birth control pills had unprocted sex same time am i pregnant ? my period due in 6 day
Maybe not: A woman who is taking her birth control pills properly, is very unlikely to be pregnant. If not regularly on birth control pills, the emergency contraception dose of the pills does work most of the time but not all of the time (if unlucky, or if taking the pills too far out after sex, one can still get pregnant). Thus, always do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex, if EC pills were needed. ...Read more
