Unlikely: 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 (3 weeks after 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

Took planb within 34 hrs had withdrawal bleeding 6 days later. 3wks period came somewhat heavy but shorter. Took 3 pregnacy test all negative. Pregnat?

Very unlikely: The period after plan B is usually different from your usual periods and with the proper use of planB and 3 negative pregnancy tests it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. You do need to get in and get started on a reliable method of contraception so you don't have to go through this worry again. Be safe. ...Read more

Yes: Birth control pills, when taken each day at about the same time, are still working to prevent pregnancy, regardless of whether the withdrawal bleeding is lighter than expected, heavier than expected, or intentionally prevented.

I had sex one week before I started my inactive bcp's. I had my normal withdrawal bleed. Could I be pregnant?

I had sex one week before I started my inactive bcp's. I had my normal withdrawal bleed. Could I be pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: Many things are possible in life, so the answer to "Could I be pregnant? " is usually "Maybe." However, if a woman is on birth control pills, beyond her initial pack, and doesn't miss pills, then she is protected against pregnancy EVERY DAY, regardless of whether she is on an active or an inactive pill (that's a very important concept). If worried, one can do a urine pregnancy test 7 days from now. ...Read more
