Right now I’m on the pill for birth control. Two weeks ago Friday, I missed my pill and took two on Saturday. That week, I had 4 or 5 days of very light bleeding. In general, my periods tend to be very light anyways, but that particular bleeding seemed a bit lighter than my regular period.
I finished my active pill last Saturday (so a week since I took the two pill at once), and I was still having some very light bleeding then. My regular period should have started Tuesday/Wednesday – but no sign of it. I took a pregnancy test this morning just to see, and it came back negative. I have missed pills before, and have had very light bleeding (not for as long as this time though), and my regular period still came on schedule. So thats why I’m a bit concerned. Is it possible/likely that I am pregnant??
And just to note – a few days after I missed Fridays pill, we did have sex but used a condom. But the next time we had sex – we didn’t use a condom.
So, normally I wouldn’t really care about all this, because while we’re not activetly trying for a baby, it would be a very welcomed surprise. My situation is that I am going to a girls night tonight that has been planned for a while. It’s very very small, so it’ll be noticeable if I don’t go. We’re planning on supper then drinks. But is it safe for me to drink?? I know I just had that negative pregnany test this morning, but I’m still really nervous about it all.
Also, I’m pretty sure pregnancy isn’t the right board to post this on, but I’m not sure which one would be! And you ladies will have the best knowledge too!

Drink till it’s pink– many women continie to drink safely until they get their bfp.

Yes. It’s very unlikely that you are pregnant. You probably just screwed up your cycle by missing pills and doubling up. If you ARE pregnant you don’t share a blood supply w the baby until 6 weeks along. Since you had a negative test this morning I’m sure it’s fine to drink and have fun. I’ve had two babies and my second I had a few drinks a couple of days before my bfp and he’s absolutely fine.

Knock yourself out. Even if you were in the earliest days of pregnancy (which is unlikely), you don’t even share a blood supply yet.

When I screw up my pill, I have very light bleeding until I get (and finish) my period. I don’t think you’re pregnant.

CanadianBride456: I agree with PPs, it’s very unlikely that you’re pregnant, I had that happen when I was on the pill too.
Darling Husband and I are TTC right now and I’m carrying on quite normal, like one PP said, drink till it’s pink! lol

Drink till it’s pink! Don’t worry- you can’t really hurt your *possible* embryo in the first two weeks anyway!

Honestly, I kinda doubt you are pregnant. Implantation bleeding does not typically last 4-5 days, and if it did it wouldn’t seem like a light period, it would be spotting.
Regardless, you are not sharing a blood supply with the baby until 6 weeks, so you should be just fine… you might want to avoid roller coaster until you test though, just in case 🙂
