About 3 weeks ago I had sex with my boyfriend during the last week of my pill calendar (the placebo pills) with a condom. My doctor was extremely late in filling my prescription for the next month and didnt fill it for about two weeks later. The pharmacist and doctor told me just to start it again that Sunday (two weeks since the last pill). We've had sex since then always with a condom and him never finishing inside me. The doctor told me I may experience bleeding but still should get my period on the week the pill calendar says. I haven't had any break through bleeding and its still two weeks til the calendar says i should get my period. Im so paranoid that i might be pregnant since my period is technically late even though i havent reached the placebo pills yet. i guess what I'm asking is, is it also likely to not experience breakthrough bleeding in my position? What are my likelyhood of being pregnant? Please, I'm so paranoid/ scared so please answer as soon as possible!

Let's take a pause first, okay?

I hear you saying you are concerned you may be pregnant, and are late per your withdrawal bleed. have you then yet taken the next step here and taken a pregnancy test?

No I haven't. I know you are supposed to take one after a missed period, would this still count?

Yep.

Mind, if you used condoms for all intercourse you had and did so properly, then even without using the pill at all, or withdrawal, pregnancy would be very unlikely.

But since you clearly are concerned about it, I'd say a test is the way to go so you can see that negative result and breathe easy again. [Smile]

Thank you so much for that!
I do have one more question if you don't mind answering, the doctor said I may experience spotting since the new calendar was started two weeks late, I haven't had any so far and it's a week into the calendar. Is it also normal to not have spotting?

When they say a "may" like that, it just means they're telling you it might happen. It doesn't mean something is wrong if it doesn't.
