Hello! I’m new here so I don’t know all the lingo but here goes....
I missed a couple of my contraceptive pills (combined) last weekend and have done the deed a few times since then, planning to do a test in a few days just to be sure.. the days I missed were just after the 1st week of the pack.
The past couple days I’ve had brownish / pinkish spotting (sorry to be graphic) and yesterday I started having a withdrawal bleed which was more like a normal period.. which then turned into brown and pink spotting after a few hours.. my usual withdrawal bleed isn’t due for another couple of weeks. I did assume there might be some bleeding from missing pills.
So am I in the clear because I’m basically having a period? Or is it just a withdrawal bleed and I should still do the test in a few days? With the pill it’s so hard to know when to do a test!!
It's a withdrawal bleed and you should be using alternative contraception (condoms) if you miss a pill, let alone more than one.
Thanks for your reply. Obviously we're not actively TTC as I'm on the pill but we're also not desperate to not conceive as well. If that makes sense. I guess I'll still do a test to be on the safe side, just have no idea when to do it.
