Okay, well, I started my withdrawel bleed on tuesday and it is always extremely light, just dark brown discharge and little tiny bits of red. Normally is goes on until on until at least sunday and a little bit until tuesday, but last night (thursday) it just stopped and I had like.. nothing! today. Should I be worried? Could I be pregnant?

Have you had a pregnancy risk? Have you been taking your birth control at the same time, every day, without missing a pill?

Periods aren't stable things. They change in terms of flow, consistency, and color. It's a totally normal thing.

Yes, I take them the same exact time everyday, one day I was a half hour late. My period started on the day it normally starts (I stop active pills sunday and start period tuesday). I did skip my placebo pills this month if that would have anything to do with it--they are iron pills.

Really, you have no pregnancy risk then. Pills are pretty darn effective against pregnancy, and half an hour is well within the time frame of effectivness.

Stress can delay a period, even on BC.
