Alright so two weeks ago me and my girlfriend had sex. She had been on birth controle for... 2 1/2 months? Maybe 3.Anyways, I came inside of here. 4 days earlier she had finished bleeding (as all women do who take birth controle... the 7 days of their cycle).We had sex saturday night. Friday, she forgot her pill. So she took it Saturday when she remembered. It was either that Saturday or Sunday that she started bleeding. Because according to what I know, if you miss a pill, you could bleed (because birth control stops the bleeding of periods).Well that was sunday. She is still bleeding a little today. She hasnt missed anymore pills since last friday or anything. She says it isnt a lot of bleeding, just a little. But shes cramping like she does when she has her periods.WHAT is going on!? We had sex in the safest time period you are supposed to (even without birth control), then she continued her pills without missing a beat for 5 days. She forgot a day, then continued again... but she is still bleeding a little bit for the 3rd day.She is a drinker lol. She had partied for about 3 or 4 nights straight (after we had sex of course). She also was feeling pretty sick with a sinus infection or something for a few days too. I told her that since she had been drinking and feeling sick, missing her pill that 1 day probably threw her bleeding cycle outta wack.I can only hope I'm right. Help please!
Is she pregnent?
Thats... not a good thing. Considering this is my senior year in high school and I'm only 17 :confused:.
I refuse to believe she's pregnent. Plus, her mom told her it could be "break through bleeding" which is caused by her body not 100% being used to the low hormone levels (a.k.a not bleeding). Of course her momdoesn't know we had sex. Things just don't add up though:
#1 - She had been on the birth control for over a month. even here ont his website it says to make sure the woman has gone through 1 month before "trusting" the birth control. And my girlfriend had been taking it for about 7 1/2 or 8 weeks (almost 3 months).
#2 - She had just gotten over her "bleeding" period from the 1st cycle of birth control. By this, I mean she had been through her 5 to 7 day bleeding period like women are supposed to while on the pill (at the end of their cycle).
#3 - She takes her pill at supper (around 5?) everyday. She had been taking it for 6 or 7 weeks without missing a day. We had the sex on a saturday night. The following Friday (or perhaps it was Thursday?) is when she missed her pill. She continued the next day taking double the amount (like you are supposed to).
#4 - She started bleeding the next day. But you are supposed to, if I'm not mistaken. Because birth control keeps hormone levels low not allowing you to bleed. When a pill is skipped, your hormone levels rise and you start to bleed until the pill gets back fully into your system and working.
#5 - As I said, according to her mom, she is experiencing "break through bleeding". Which is apparently caused by the birth control user's body not 100% being used to the low hormone levels or something like that.
Is it STILL possible to get her pregnent even after all that? I, alonge with a handful of other people (including girls) are 99.9% sure its about a 1 in a billon chance. But still...
I doubt she is pregnant simply because you said she missed the pill almost a week after you two had sex. If it had been before I would be more concerned. I think it is also breakthrough bleeding.Anyway, be more careful in the future. If she cannot remember to take her pill, perhaps she can go on the shot. Or you can wear a condom.
Thanks for the info DxLISH. That is exactly what I thought. It didn't make sense to me that 4 or 5 days AFTER we had sex it was possible for her to get pregnent.But a question about break through bleeding -- is it a good thing sign? I assumed she wouldn't bleed at all if she was pregnent. She says her stomach hurts a little because of the bleeding, but that just sounds like regular 'ol period cramps IMO.
I wouldn't say it was a good or bad sign, but it is normal when you a miss a pill.
