If you have a normal period, you are not pregnant, correct?

Last month I had a very normal period [lasted about 5 or 6 days], and I definitely went through a lot of pads/tampons... my flow was not light but regular, a little "heavy" at times even. There was visible blood... not just brown discharge. But lately, I have been craving all kinds of foods, feeling a little crampy, and etc. I know the only true way to know you are pregnant is if you take a test, so I am wondering if I should, even if I got my period.

The period that I am writing/worrying about was from a month when I had just started my birth control, I was only 5 days into it and had protected sex. The condom did not break and no ejaculate/pre-ejaculate came in contact with my vaginal area, but I still worry. I am now currently on the light blue pills of my 2nd pack, and I know now I am protected but still will continue to use condoms.

If you are on the birth control pill and were pregnant would you still have your withdrawal bleed?


Thanks.

You paired birth control pills with correct condom use, plus had a full period. You cannot be pregnant, at all.

The symptoms you're describing could well be your body getting used to the pill, or just plain old cravings and stomach upset.

But when I had my "risk" I was only on BC for 5 days; I had just started. BUT I got my period so that doesn't matter.


Thankkkk you.
