A little worried.

I'm currently nursing my 4 month old and am on the mini pill. I haven't had a period since I started the mini pill 3 months ago however, I did spot for two days over the weekend. I do avidly excerise and have been sexually active with my spouse. Could I be pregnant again or am I just getting myself worked up over nothing?

  • Even with the pill, it isn't 100% effective, so yes, as long as you are sexually active, you could be pregnant. If your'e concerned about it, take a test!

  • Thanks ladies! So even though I'm breast feeding and on the mini pill I still have a chance of getting pregnant then?

  • Yes. Breastfeeding doesn't lower your chances of getting pregnant and the pill isn't 100%. So there is a possibility even if its a small one.

  • My husband has two brothers that are 11 months apart in age, unplanned. Anything is possible.

  • Probably not, because of the breast feeding that may cause you not to have a full period, but I think I would go out and buy a test, better to know than to wait!
