A week ago I posted that I missed my birth control pill by 8 hours and had sexual intercourse. My concern was possibility of pregnancy. So about three days before my schedule withdrawal bleeding my breasts go really soar (pregnancy sign 1) then I noticed white discharge (pregnancy sign 2). So I got really nervous. Then today my withdrawal bleeding started (which is when it normally comes, Tuesday). I had cramping and bleeding all day but now it's slowing down. Its normally medium flow for 5 days. Should I take a pregnancy test?

I'm not sure I understand why you're assigning things you're experiencing in your body to pregnancy when you haven't discovered you're pregnant. Especially things that more commonly happen with say, PMS or using the pill than they do with early pregnancy.

Having flow stop and go sometimes also isn't unusual.

But I hear you saying clearly you are worried you may be pregnant: so, it sounds like YOU would probably like to take a test to find out for sure, no? If so, then by all means, take a test.

Having your flow slow down and then start up again is not unusual, as Heather said. It has happened to me a few times while using birth control; and it did make me worried at times, but I've learned here that it's not unusual and that it can happen sometimes. [Smile]
