ive been taking the pill for a year now, in august when i was meant to have a break for a week to have my period i didnt because i was away on holiday all month. the last time i had a NORMAL period was july 8th. i had sex on august 12th, as i said i was on the pill and we used a condom except it came off, i dont know whether or not he ejaculated inside me or not but i dont think he did. in september i was due to come off my pill on the 1st except for a week before that i had been getting bleeding, very light but consistent, this carried on till around the 6th september. it got a tiny bit heavier in the time i was supposed to be having my period (1st onwards) (i dont know whether this is a missed period or not) so then i started to worry! i havent had many symptoms, i have been constipated but had no nausea or tender breasts. i started re-taking the pill on 15th so finished on the 6th october, it usually takes me 2 days to come on after i have stopped the pill so was therefore due on today saturday 8th october, but as of yet i havent come on. i have done much more exercise this week than i ever do so this could be a reason but it might be because im pregnant, and im really worrying- i am so embarrassed to tell anyone and am nervous to go buy a pregnancy test so thought i would post on here to see if it is likely/possible if i am pregnant. i would really appreciate speedy, helpful replies. thank you sooo much. charlotte xxx

Given you had bleeding from the 1st through the 6th AND then heavier bleeding sounds like you had some spotting then your withdrawal bleed. I'm not seeing a reason to worry here. (Also just adding in here if you didn't check in with your doctor before skipping your withdrawal week off the pill you want to do that in the future) but the off schedule is likely due to the change from not having been off the pill when your body expected it.
