I'm on the pill, but missed a day or two, when me and my boyfriend went away, and yes we had unprotected sex i know, i know bad but after 3 days i noticed like a bleed and then some brown discharge that is still going on. I had my period on the 1st of jan and this happened on the 20th jan...could i be pregnant?

It is just the aborted fetus draining out. You were pregnant but the pill killed it off. Nothing to worry about.

You could just go buy a pregnancy test rather than just ask a bunch of people who have as much idea as you do.

Very unlikely, although you may want to take a test just to make sure. The bleeding will just be a reaction to the missed pills, and the brown discharge is also just another side effect of this.

Go get a pregnancy test. I'm on the pill and I get bleeds like that all the time. Thats not to say your not pregnant, you did have unprotected sex after all and you can still bleed up to a month after becoming pregnant.

No. If she was having a miscarriage she would know about it.

The contraceptive pill prevents fertilisation, its not the morning after pill.

Massive difference

OP its just one of the side effects of the pill.

It does not occur that regularly, however you might want to check with your GP.

Maybe a change in the pill you are on may reduce this effect.

how long have you been on the pill?
because getting bleeding is normal on some versions of the pill, its just a period. you may have had it before but perhaps not noticed it so much so dont worry too much but i think its more likely that this could be an STI so i'd go and get a test for it! good luck x

Brown discharge/blood can happen sometimes. That's just how the pill is. As for the pregnancy, get a test, just to be safe

Probably just a light bleed/spotting from missing the pill for a few days.

It happens sometimes. I'd wait till your next 7 day break, if you don't get a period/withdrawal bleed then get a pregnancy test. Don't panic, if you can't wait till then get a pregnancy test soon (it does take about 6 days for hcG to appear in urine though, so it'd be worth waiting a few days till you get a pregnancy test.) If it's clear and you keep getting random bleeding see your GP. Take care.

The chances are you're not, but definitely take a test to be sure.

If a woman gets pregnant whilst on the pill, would she still get a period during her 7 day break? Just wondering

I may be wrong but I always thought that the "period" you have on the pill isn't a real period anyway..

Why are you not taking a pregnancy test?

So does the morning after pill. There's not a lot of difference between the two, actually.

Incredibly similar really, morning after pill is just a large does of synthetic progesterone, same as the mini pill. Just.. a considerably larger dose, obviously.

I know they are pretty much the same pill

However the post i quoted was mentioning an aborted foetus coming out in the bleeding.

Which is clearly wrong since fertilisation would have never occurred.

Also the difference is the morning after pill is taken after fertilisation/or suspected fertilisation.

Also at no point would a foetus have formed when on the pill or after taking the morning after pill. It would still be a zygote/blastocyst.
