am I pregnant, is this normal, or do I just have a late period?
Question Posted Friday June 22 2012, 1:02 am
I had sex 5 days ago (3 days before i was supposed to start). We didn't use a condom for a little part in the beginning (like less than 5 slides in and out), but then stopped and went and got it. I had never had sex before, and I'm on the pill. But after he left, I noticed I bled a little in my underwear (like the end of your period) and so I figured he just popped my cherry, but I haven't had my period yet and I was supposed to start 2 days ago, and I also didn't miss a pill... am I pregnant?

Sorry I'm not as in depth as the user below me. ):
I've been through this before >.< so I know from experience.
---ps---use a condom every single time. Bots have precum and that can still have sperm in it. Don't risk it.

If you're just starting, like a month or two, it can just be your hormones readjusting your cycle. As for pregnancy, most birth control pills have a 1-3% failure rate. Anyway, birth control pills take at least 7 days to fully take effect. If you have been taking this for longer, then disregard the 7 day thing. As I have heard from many people, pre-cum can impregnate a woman, but that is something I do not know whether to be true or not. Also, have you taken any antibiotics recently? Some antibiotics can completely nullify the effects of some birth controls. The best thing to do is wait another week, if you have not gotten your period then, get a home pregnancy test. If it turns out negative, then it's more likely just your birth control pills readjusting, if it turns out positive, well then.. you can always consider other options, I'm not saying only abortion, but I'm also saying, if you know you two cannot care for it, the other option would be adoption. Many families out there cannot have children, and yours would be a blessing to them. Anyway, don't freak over it. Chances are it's just the birth control readjusting with the hormones and the lot. I take bcp as well, and I had an irregular cycle for a couple of months. Now it's pretty regular. [ Rena-Chan's advice column | Ask Rena-Chan A Question ]
