I have been on a monophasic hormonal birth control pill for the last 6 months or so, and I have not missed a pill and I always take them around the same time, if not at the exact same time. At the end of June, I was due to get my period; I had sore breasts which always happens about a week before it comes. However, instead of taking my 7 day break from the pill to get my period, I started a new pack of pills. (This is the first time I have done this) The first few days of doing so I had very slight spotting here and there, but now, for the past 5 or 6 days, I’ve had bleeding that resembles a normal period along with cramps, backaches and slight nausea, which are all common for me on my period; even though I’m not due for my period for another week or so. I have read things online about breakthrough bleeding being common with taking back to back packs of pills, but I can’t help but be worried about this bleeding and if it could be implantation bleeding? My SO and I have had sex without a condom no more than about 3 or 4 times in the last month, and he has never finished inside of me- he’ll always pull out long before. I know the pull out method isn’t super effective, but, combined with my pill, should I be covered? I can’t help but be paranoid about being pregnant; is there any chance his precum could have gotten me pregnant and this “breakthrough bleeding” could actually be implantation bleeding and a sign of pregnancy? I am extremely worried as I am in no way prepared to get pregnant right now– any help is MUCH appreciated!

It’s very unlikely. Implanation bleeding is not usually that heavy.

Nope! It’s just your body and the pills.

It’s most like your period/breakthrough bleeding from skipping a week of placebos. Implantation bleeding is usually just a scant amount of spotting.

Based on everything you said I would doubt it. Possible, but I doubt it.

If what you say is true and you always take the pill correctly, No.

The best way to check is with a pregnancy test. The pill is not 100% protection, accidents happen. Yes, pre cum can get you pregnant. You are being responsible, that’s great! But only a test will say for sure. Take in the morning with the first urination for best results

I would guess 99.9% chance no, there’s always a chance but those 3-4 times you had sex would have to be perfectly timed (by chance of course) and he pulled out every time. Not fool proof, but definitely lowers the chances.

It’s breakthrough bleeding

Deep breath. No, you’re not pregnant. all of my girlgirlfriends who have tried to skip placebos have ended up with wacky bleeding. Some their period arrived a week late, my bff had a period for 3 weeks. I know gyns say it’s fine and women do successfully skip periods this way, but I’m of the opinion that it just screws with your cycle. You aren’t pregnant

I believe that you’re fine! I wouldn’t worry too much about it. It is probably the pills messing with your hormones.
