On birth control pills, cramping, stopped pills, pregnancy test negative, irregular periods. Pregnant?

hello. I have been taking aranelle birth control pills for a few months and I missed one on September the 19th and continued taking them. 2 days later my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and for about a week I had lots of cramping so I thought I might be pregnant. I stopped taking my pills and still haven't had a period. my period should be ending. I had some spotting for the 2days after missing a pill and a few days after stopping the pill. if I was still taking pill I should have started my period on September 29th. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and they were both negative. is it too early for a positive result or am I going to have a period?

Hello
Thanks for your query.
It is not too early for a pregnancy test as you were due for your period on September 29th.
Also, it is common to have spotting and a missed period sometimes while on the pill.
Continue taking the pill as usual if you plan to take birth control.
Meanwhile do use a backup method for this month.
Repeat your pregnancy test after a week to be sure.
All the best.

I had sex about a month ago. I took a pregnancy test a week after having sex, and four days before my missed period, and it came out negative. The same day i took the pregnancy test, i started my period. I had messed up my birthcontrol for the month so i stopped taking it about halfway through the month. My period was very heavy and lasted a few days longer than it usually would when i wasn t taking my pills . It was about 8 days long and it finally ended. Yesterday, about a week after my period ended i started bleeding agian. I can t tell if it is spotting or another period. It is very heavy agian, the blood is bright red, and there are occasional clots. What does this mean, is it possible that i could still be pregnant even though i had a week long period, or is this normal because i messed up my birth control?

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?
