Could i be pregnant if i forgot to take pill after an unprotected sex, even though i am on Loestrin ?

I had unprotected sex and forgot to take the pill that night, could I be pregnant? I just started taking Loestrin two months ago, so I m somewhat new to taking pills . I was on my period and I had unprotected sex last night, the same night I was supposed to start taking active pills again, but I forgot to take the pill. I take it every night at 10pm and I remembered to take the pill today at about 4 pm, then I took another at 10 pm. Is it possible that I might become pregnant?

Hi..I m 16 and I had unprotected sex on friday night I m on the loestrin pill because I was allergic to mycrogynene. I m on this loestrin pill 3 months, last wednesday I forgot to take the pill that morning but took it a few hours later when I got home but I take my pill everyday at the same time. It was my first time having sex and he came in me, we did it for only 5 minutes but since friday my stomach is full of cramps and making loud noises. There now I went to the toilet and I see some spotting.

I have been taking Loestrin 24 Fe for at least a year and a half now. I used to take it before bed, but for the past few months I have been taking it at a set time (I have very rarely missed a pill and if I am late taking it, it is normally within a 1-3 window - the latest being 4 hours late). This routine has been going on for at least three or four months, if not a bit more. I have been reading a lot of the other posts and know that I shouldn t necessarily be worried, but I can t help but do so. I had sex with my boyfriend Monday morning and we didn t use a condom. He said there should be no problem since he said that nothing got inside - which I assume is that he didn t ejaculate inside of me (too into the moment to notice if he had pulled out or not). The thing is is that I am supposed to start the iron pills tomorrow (Wednesday) and soon after my period. Any chance of pregnancy? I m nervous since I tend to skip periods then get them again, and I m worried that this will be a skipped month and something could go unnoticed.

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
