Stopped birth control pills, bled, then started on new pack 1.5 weeks after bleeding.Possible to get pregnant? Had brown spotting (light) for 4-5 days
Yes: The bleeding indicates your uterus sloughing off the previous months build up of tissue in anticipation of a pregnancy. 10 days post menses (bleeding) means you might have ovulated. You should treat this as if you just started on birth control and avoid unprotected sex for at least a month, one full cycle, after you restarted. Really safe would be two months. ...Read more

Unlikely: It is possible, though unlikely that you ovulated. You could have taken morning after pill, however, taking two pills is likely to be helpful. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...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
