Sex Then Missed A Pill
I missed my bc in the time spand of 4 days than I had unprotected sex and miss my pill that day am I pregnant?
Possibly: Any time bc pill is missed, u are at risk for pregnancy during the rest of the cycle & should use alternate method of prevention (like foam & condom). Get home pregnancy test, run it. Increase Folic Acid just in case u are pregnant. If test negative, repeat in couple days or see ob/gyn/fp for blood pregnancy test. Avoid alcohol, drugs, meds that might injure fetus until your pregnancy status sure. ...Read more

I've been on the pill for a year and had unprotected sex. I missed one pill and was late taking another that same week. What's my chance of pregnancy?
It can happen: Since you missed two pills in the same wee and not one, ovulation suppression will be sporadic and pregnancy possible. If you took the pill you missed along with the scheduled pill of that day (doubling your pills) the likelihood of pregnancy is much reduced. Run a pregnancy test at the end of this cycle before you start your next pack of pills. ...Read more
Was supposed to get period today & instead brown discharge came out. On birth control & had unprotected sex and missed a pill but took it 12 hrs after?
Had unprotected sex and missed BC pill the next day. The morning after had period cramps but no blood and feel nauseous today. Pregnant?
Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal withdrawal period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
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

But even well timed intercourse without contraception has only a 20-30% chance of getting you pregnant in a given month so you may get lucky. If remembering to take your pill daily is a problem, talk to your doctor about long term contraception that doesn't need to be taken daily to effectiv. ...Read more

Check pregnancy test: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Brown is simply old blood that has been sitting at the back of the vagina. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

Missed OCP: The first thing is to have a pregnancy test. The birth control pill works only if it is taken at approximately the same time each day and if no pills are missed. Each missed pill increases your risk of becoming pregnant, I strongly recommend that you use condoms for the remainder of the month. Please see a healthcare provider to help you straighten this out. ...Read more
