light period with cramping TMI but i need info

i'm on birth control but had not been taking my pills like I'm suppose to. i would take some early in the morning some late afternoon... and I skipped like 2. (I forget alot lol) Well for the past few days (since thursday) I have had VERY light bleeding and is bright bright red and kinda brown also. There could always be the chance i'm preg... my husband and I don't like condoms so rarely ever use them. But today I'm having bad cramps in my lower stomach on the left side. On birth control I don't start the white pills until wednesday... so this is very unexpected that I would be bleeding already... so you all think I should take a preg test or not?

  • Could be by skipping pills your period is coming early, or trying too.

  • Take a test. The bleeding you describe sounds like the bleeding I had in the beginning before I found out I was pregnant and I had pain pretty similar to what you are describing in the beginning also, from a cyst. But that is my own experience.
    Good luck
