@hoogirl05:  I think that more likely than not, you’re just spotting because your hormones are out of whack. You can’t just take pills whenever you want lol. I know you know this, but basically unless you miss only one pill, you’re supposed to use a back-up method.

You could be pregnant, but I think I would wait a couple more weeks before you test again.

What kind of pill are you on? Low hormone? This happened to me last October. I missed four pills in a row and did take them all eventually. Then I had some breakthrough bleeding throughout the rest of the cycle but no period. Now it was the norm for me to not really get a period (just a little cramping and spotting) but I was concerned enough to take a test and it was negative-o! I doubt you are pregnant and I honestly wouldn’t worry about it.

I really don’t have any advice for you but wanted to comment and sent you good luck! Hope you get a BFP soon if you aren’t already!

yeah, i also think you’re just symptom spotting and your body was just out of whack from the missed pills. i’ve missed only one pill before and had weird symptoms and freaked out lol (as you can see in my posting history haha). hopefully you guys get a BFP soon! it may only take a couple cycles off the pill. 😉

Go take a pregnancy test as a precaution. But this just sounds like out of whack hormones. Taking more than two at a time is rough on your body, and messing up 4 or 5 pills could do this to you.

One more vote for your hormones being out of whack rather than a pregnancy. FWIW: my BCPs say that if you miss one, you should take it ASAP, but if you miss a few that month (esp in a row), you should just throw away the pack, because you’re not protected from pregnancy after that large a gap in dosage. Obviously that’s NBD for you, because you’re TTC shortly…and I’ll admit that I don’t know what the advice would be for people who are taking it primarily for health reasons rather than as a contraceptive. But just as an FYI/PSA for those out there: if you often find yourself forgetting to take the pill and you are relying on it to prevent pregnancy, you may want to look into a different form of birth control like the shot, the NuvaRing, or an IUD.
