Spotting10days, missd 1 pill 3rd wk of pack, unprot sex same day missed pill, skpd sugars, strtd new pk, besides missed pill take pill religsly,preg?
Probably not: Missing a pill even if you take it as soon as you remember can cause some spotting. Spotting can also result from skipping the placebos and immediately starting a second pack. Some get away with it but others experience the bleeding. If in doubt, check a pregnancy test and, if it is negative. Repeat it in 3-5 days. If both are negative, you can be sure you are not pregnant. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Sure: No sexual intercourse required. As long as some fertile semen get into the vagina of a fertile woman, there is chance of a pregnancy. That means if she lies there in a position such that her vagina (inside) can be seen, and he squirts semen from a distance but it lands inside her vagina, it could be the start of a new baby. So, always think contraception if wanting to avoid a new baby or an STD. ...Read more
Just started taking lo loestrin fe. took 5 active pill, then took sugar pills during my period. I just had unprotected sex, Is my bc still effective?
Birth Control: If you actually start your OCPs when you start your period, you are immediately protected. If you start at any other time, I usually recommend a back up contraception for 2 weeks. Also, when you start pills in the middle of your cycle, it can throw your period off. I would suggest continuing the pill as prescribed, but taking a pregnancy test in the next 2 weeks. Good luck ...Read more

Got provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawl bleed on Sunday, then started bc pill again...following Sunday got period! Continue pill pack? Why period now?
Yes continue pills: you may continue to have breakthrough or unpredictable bleeding while taking the pill. Continue to use birth control pills as prescribed. not all bleeding is "your period" , and you do not get a " period" on the pill. bleeding that occurs on hormonal contraception (like the birth control pill , ring or patch) is a withdrawal bleed if during the placebo pills, or breakthrough bleed other times. ...Read more

Period 5 day late. Had protected sex 5 days ago. On birth control, accidentally skipped inactive pills last month. Home preg test negative. Am I preg?
Not likely: On birth control pills... means not pregnant, regardless of whether one takes or skips the inactive pills, as along as a new pack is started at the appropriate time and the active pills are taken at about the same time each day. "Protected sex" means not pregnant. "Preg test negative" after missing a period for 5 days means not pregnant. With 3 things meaning not pregnant, pregnancy is unlikely. ...Read more
