I know that the withdrawal bleed is not the same thing as having your period, but does it still mean that you aren't pregnant? I can't remember if it was from a reliable source or not, but I know I've heard that having a withdrawal bleed doesn't necessarily mean you're not pregnant, is that true at all? I was just curious because my boyfriend and I had a condom malfunction not too long ago. I take my pill religiously, so I'm not that worried, but I'm now having my withdrawal bleed and wanted to make sure that meant I'm for sure not pregnant. Thanks for your time, Smiley.

Yes, a withdrawal bleed coming when you expect it to is a sure sign you're not pregnant.
That's the nice thing about using multiple methods. If one doesn't work quite as it's supposed to, the other one is there.
