Period On Pill Can I Still Be Pregnant
I had unprotected sex 2days before period then I had my period regulary, now I have some brownish discharge, im on the pill can I still be pregnant?
Doubtful: If you had a normal menstrual period since you had sexual intercourse - then you should not be pregnant. Brown discharge is usually older blood being cleaned from the uterus. Would encourage consistent use of protection if you don't want to be pregnant at this time. When in doubt - a pregnancy test can provide definitive answer. Take care. ...Read more

Missed two periods. Tests are negative. Gyno said wait to see if I miss a third, then will give me a pill to start my period.? could I still be pregnant
Very unlikely: Pregnancy tests are accurate and reliable, and although no test is 100%, pregnancy tests are close. If you have more than one negative pregnancy test then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. I agree with your Gyno's plan. You should of course have one more pregnancy test prior to taking the pill (s) to start your period. ...Read more

If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?
Yes: Obviously you were very concerned about the possibility of being pregnant since you took plan b. Emergency contraception is not 100% effective, so it is certainly possible to be pregnant. A negative pregnancy test is reassuring but that is also not 100% accurate either way, especially early. Irregular periods can be from pregnancy, or other causes, so if worry continues, be seen and checked out. ...Read more
Missed 4 pills and had unprotected sex on fertile days. Started light period after missing pills. Could I still be pregnant if bleeding days after?
Had unprotected sex on the first day of my period. Took morning after pills and period lasted for 8 days. Is this normal? Could I still be pregnant?
Unlikely: The timing of the morning after pills is important in preventing pregnancy. If you take it within 72 hours after you've had unprotected sex, you reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 89%. Within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective. But you should know that Plan B is not as effective as regular contraception. So get on some type of regular birth control if you do not want to get pregnant. ...Read more

Peins touched vagina. Took Morning after pill levonorgestrel 1.5mg. After 6 days got heavy period for 7 days. Could I still be pregnant?
Not likely: I am not a Obstetrician / Gynecologist, so first you should go to whoever prescribed the levonorgestrel & ask this question in person. From your description, I think the bleeding is from withdrawal of levonorgestrel with a contribution from your usual menstrual cycle. Generally, with such bleeding, pregnancy is unlikely. You could check a home pregnancy test just to be sure. ...Read more

Unprotected sex: If you have your period, which is normal for you, then you are not pregnant. If you bleed, but it's a lighter bleeding and usually shorter than your normal period, do a pregnancy test to rule it out. If you miss your period, then do a pregnancy test, too. ...Read more
Could I still be pregnant after 5 negative home pregnancy tests? Most recent 2 months after last missed period. Used the pill for a month then stopped
Pregnancy negative: The answer is yes, but the testing may not have occurred at the time pregnancy can be detected, since at 17, stress and emotional reactions can delay ovulation, and pregnancy may have occurred much later than when the tests were used. The "pill" can produce a lack of ovulation for weeks after stiopping, however, and pregancy therefore does not happen, and the tests would be negative.. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more
