If you got your real period after having sex, then you’re not pregnant. A minority of women having bleeding in early pregnancy, but this is very unlikely to be what you had. A pregnancy test would be positive by now if it’s been a couple of weeks since having sex.

kayaj12:  generally speaking, it’s safe to stop using a back up method 7 days after starting/switching BC.

kayaj12:  I am one of those people who always asks when I’m switching or stopping or have something strange happen and the answer has always been one week from doctors and pharmacists.

kayaj12:  I’m not a doctor so don’t know for sure, but it seems like you would be safe if you were taking your birth control according to the directions. 

I also wanted to add, just for future reference for you, sperm only lives about 5 days max and your body must ovulate while the sperm is alive inside for you to get pregnant. The pill stops ovulation using hormones. If it failed for some reason the average woman ovulates about 14 days after the start of her last period, although individuals can vary from this.
