Having light brown bleeding/cramps/bloating. -sex regular/on pill. Period evry 3 months/dont pay attention to days. Sex 3 weeks ago and missed pill?

Missing one pill: Is unlikely to result in pregnancy, but it can cause irregular bleeding. After three weeks if you had become pregnant likely you would pick it up on an early pregnancy home test.

If you missed more than one pill however, you may not be protected and need to use a backup method. Best wishes! ...Read more
