Chances of pregnancy on birth control pills is less than 1% if you have been taking them regularly as advised i.e. each day of the cycle in the right order around almost same time of the day . In either case dont freakout ....get a Urine pregnancy test done or better still Serum beta HCG test ( which is a more sensitive blood pregnancy test but also more expensive test ) if you have history of irregular pill intake. Let me know what the results are and i can guide from there on . Best of luck.

I suggest you to meet a gynecologist, bcos it could be something called as PID.

Hi I m 23 years old and I was suppose to get my period on sept 9 but I didn t get it.Then on sept 16 I woke up n went to pee and when u wiped it was like a brownish color when I wiped. Then it stopped!!! Then on the 17 I woke up and when I went to the bath room a pinkest blood showed. So I was wondering if this is just my period or could this be that I m having a baby! I have one some and when I had my son I was a week late for my period and I got what I thought was my because it was just like my period but only lasted for three day. then I ended up being prego . So I m wondering if this is what happening now??

I had unprotected sex on the fourth of this month, and i thought i was having pregnancy symptoms (fatigue,headaches) so i decided to buy one of those First Response Pregnancy test, (that claim that they can detect if your pregnant 6 days before your missed period.) So I took the test 4 days before my missed period and got a negative, so i waited and i took the test again 2 days before my missed period and got another negative. I started my period when i was suppose to (on the 24th) and the first day it was really light earlier in the day, like i only saw blood when i urinated. Then it got heavier later on in the day. Now on day two, i woke up and saw brownish stuff and its light again. What do you think is going on?

I was on the mini pill and forgot to take it for over a week. I started getting brown discharge/spotting a few days after, it lasted for around two weeks. I thought this may have been my period at the time, but it was a it was really early, however I didn t have my period at the end of the month. Anyways I had a dream I was pregnant so, thought I would take a test after remembering all the above. Turns out I am actually pregnant and according to clear blue digital. I am 5+ weeks. What I suppose my question is. What was the brown stuff? Was it my period? I can t pin point when this all took place, but I definately had a period in October. This may have all occurred in November early Dec I m not sure. Is it possible I am 10+ weeks pregnant?
