Hi there,
I have been on birth control for several years now, and am sexually active with my boyfriend. He always pulls out, and I haven't missed a pill this month. But my period came a little over a week early, and its lasted for 7 days now, the last two days being quite light. My period usually lasts around 5 days. I'm wondering if I should be worried about pregnancy. Thanks in advance!

It sounds like it's still a normal bleed, even though it's lighter than normal. It may have been different as well because it was early - which can happen from time to time. If you start to notice your cycle being off the next few months though you'll want to just check in with a doctor to make sure everything's okay.
