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

Often : Often times when you miss a pill your hormone levels are off thus resulting in spotting or light bleeding. On the other hand the fact that you missed a pill puts you at risk for pregnancy. So implanttaion bleeding is a possibility. You should have started your period by now or be expecting it soon. If it does not come take a pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more
