This is Dr. David
the bleeding could have been your period.
chances of pregnancy are small, but not zero.
the best time to do a home pregnancy test is if you miss your next period
I didn't finish the pack? I stopped taking it. Theres about 8 pills left in pack?
I would go back on the birth control pills.
So the bleeding could have been my period?
yes, the bleeding could have been your period.
but if you have been sexually active, you should see a gyn doctor and get routine gyn exams.
have you ever had a gyn examination before?
Yes I have. What would this have done?
your regular period could do this.
sometimes infections can cause break through bleeding.
or prior trauma to the cervix from sex can cause bleeding as well.
Ok. So even after missing so many pills its only a small chance of pregnancy? I was sexually active before and during bleeding.
yes, even if missing pilss
and if you had sex during the time of the break though bleeding, most likely you are not pregnant.
but you have to see if you have your next period, if you miss your next period you can use a home pregnancy test.
or you can see a doctor in 2-3 weeks and get blood testing to check sooner to see if you are pregnant.
but chances are low.
Great. Thank you. When should I start back on the pill?
I would start a new pack now that your bleeding has stopped.
Great thank you.
