Could i be pregnant? adult content

Hi! I've been on BC for almost 2 years. I missed 3 pills on the 9th,10th,and 11th of this month. Me and hubby had sex on those three days that i missed my pills...We also had sex one other day after that. I have not taken my pills since those days that i missed them in fear that i may be pregnant. I got my period on the 20th, and it stopped yesterday. I still feel as though i may be pregnant. I took a test like a week before i got my period and it was negative. Im wondering how long i should wait to take another test and if anyone thinks i could still be pregnant even though i got my period?

  • that wasn't a period,it was from the lack of hormones from the pills you didn't take.I doubt you are pregnant, but wait a few weeks for the hormones to clear and retest

  • it really does not sound like you are. wait until next month and if you miss your period, then worry.

  • When you're on the pill the bleeding you get is not a true period,its withdrawl bleeding from the lack of the BC hormones.

  • Butterfly.....ok...the last time i took the pill was the 8th i think. we had sea the 9th, 10th, 11th, and one other night after that. we used no other protection, and he did cum in me. I read online that there is no certain time that it takes for the bc pill to be out of you...they say you can get pregnant by missing just 1 pill. It's really bugging me, that's why im on here trying to talk with other mom's and see what they think. I'm trying to give it some time before i take another test.

  • You can take another test but, I doubt you are. I agree with waiting til next month and if you miss your period then worry.

  • Not to get your hopes up, but there is only a small possibility you could be pregnant. I have a friend, who came off of her BC pills and DID get pregnant that same week.....but, didn't have a positive pregnancy test for another few weeks....so, if you are concerned that you might be, just stay off BC until then.
