i had been on diane-35 for 2 yrs as treatment for single ovarian cyst.I took the last pill-cycle in december-2003.I had normal periods in last week of jan( sometime 20-28 jan)(after 1 full cycle of diane had been skipped).
then i had unprotected sex with my bf on jan 30 and feb 6.he ejaculated outside my body on both occasions.
i had periods in feb at normal expected date.however,they were 1)-little lighter than usual, 2)- went on for 7-8 days....bcoz it was like..i had spotting for 1 bleeding the next day...painless bleeding the next 1 1/2 bleeding for 1 day........bleeding for 1 that

in normal periods also while takin th epill...i usually have bleeding for 2 days n then it stops for a day n resumes for 1 day.usually my periods r painless n the flow is also normal.not heavy..pretty light

the problem now is...i missed my march periods
and i m worried about being pregnant
ques asked.........
1) he dint ejaculate in my contact with semen after that
2) been on pill for 2 yrs.......i think i was in that period wen i still cudnt conceive bcoz of the after-pill effect
3) had a period in between sex and now but missed the 1 supposed 2 happen now
4) i have NO other symptoms of pregnancy

am i pregnant or m i clean

Hi roses,

I strongly recommend that you take a pregnancy test now. This will help you much better than any further speculation on your fertility.

Fact is, you had high risk unprotected sex. It does not that your partner did not ejaculate inside you: before ejaculation there is pre-ejaculate, which can cause pregnancy just as well.
Also, the bleeding you experienced between now and the unprotected sex was not as you had expected it to be. While it's to be expected that your cycles are a bit erratic after stopping the pull, and bleeding can be very different from what you were used to during the pill, the fact this bleeding was light and more "spotting", does not rule out pregnancy, either.

So yes, you could be pregnant.

Not having any "symptoms" of pregnancy matters little, too. Most "symptoms" such as frequent urination, sensitive breasts or vomiting do not occur until later in pregnancy. You do have a primary sign of pregnancy though: a late period.

While the pill can influence fertility after stopping it, it's not an effect one should ever rely on. You are only protected from pregnancy while you take the pill, not after you stopped taking it.

So take a test now, yes?
