Had intercourse during periods, very light bleeding. Taken emergency contraceptive pills, on birth control pills. Normal?

Well i had sex on the first day of my period and my boyfriend didnt cum But he may have pre cummed so i took next choice emergency contraceptive as backup. Im also on birth control but i missed one pill out of 2 months if that means anything. My period is usually light but this time after the pill it was very light and then virtually stopped after 3 days. Is this normal and how worried should i be about pregnancy.

Welcome to HCM,

In a regular menstrual cycle of 28 days ovulation generally occurs on the 14th day of menstrual period.

One can become pregnant due to intercourse done on or around the day of ovulation.

Thus first day of menstrual period is safe regarding pregnancy.

Bleeding may be light during menstrual period sometimes.

As chance of pregnancy due to sex on first day, are almost nil, you should not worry.

Please avoid unprotected sex in future.

as you told you have done sex on the first day of your period and also took contraceptive pill.
I want to tell you first that you are totally secure and you will not get pregnant not because you took contraceptive pill.
If you hv took the pill that time also you were secure cz to get pregnant is nt only doing unprotected sex but a sex at an appropriate time of a lady's period that is mid of the period when ovulation occurs.

And you also told that you got very light periods for that i want to prescribe you some medicine you can contact me fir that with your full details..
