But ever since then I have been tired and nausias everyday and usually everyday I have discharge but ever since around the last time I had sex.. I haven't had this! is there a Possibility to be pregnant?

Please explain to me whatever you think is going on?

And should I keep taking the pill or stop till I take a pregnancy test if there is a need to?

How long have you been using the pill for? And, to your knowledge, do you use it properly?

As well, since you've been having unprotected sex, and increased discharge is something you're experiencing, are you up-to-date with your tests for sexually transmitted infections?

How big of a difference is there, day to day, in the time you take your pills?

You really want to try and stick around the same time of day, so if it's evening, around 8, try and stay within a few hours of that, not moving into midnight and beyond.

But it sounds like you've been taking it pretty well, so you likely have somewhere between typical use effectiveness and perfect use, which would average out to around 95%. The pill is never 100% in any use, so pregnancies do still happen even with totally perfect users, though it's rare. And just because someone hasn't gotten pregnant before when taking it flexibly time-wise doesn't mean they won't ever.

Am I understanding, though, that you had a withdrawal bleed after the times you had intercourse using only the pill?

The seven-day break where you have the pill's version of a period, a withdrawal bleed: did you have that AFTER the intercourse you're concerned may have presented pregnancy risks?

Okay. So, for the times you did this before that period, you can figure it's not likely you became pregnant then. And if this last incident was in the last week or so, you can be pretty sure your symptoms aren't about pregnancy, because pregnancy and symptoms are rarely that instant.

How long have you been feeling tired and nauseated for now?

Three weeks of nausea and fatigue is something to check in with a healthcare provider about. It seems unlikely it's about pregnancy, but you should find out what it IS about, since being ill like that for weeks is a signal of something being the matter.
