I may just be freaking out too much, but I have reasons to be concerned. So about 2 weeks ago I had unprotected sex. I am on the pill and take it religiously every day at the same time. I tried to get EC but I was traveling at the time (same day) and wasn't able to get to a doctor in time. About 3 days after the "incident" I forgot to take my pill. I was fine but after a few days started to get some spotting (not bright red blood but old blood). I wasn't due for a period yet (had one 3 weeks ago but my cycle is currently every 3 months rotation) but I ran out of pills before my proscription came in so I decided to take a week off. My period is usually late, most of the time i don't start bleeding until at least Wednesday, but this time I have had the cramping that I usually experience but instead of blood lots of discharge is coming out. Enough to make me have to change underwear and wear a pad....What is happening to me. Is it my body just not being ready for a period or am I pregnant?? I know before when I took a week off of the pill two to three weeks after my period my flow was extremely delayed, is this the same sort of thing? I cant believe I was so stupid as to do such a thing!
p.s. Chocolate cravings are the same as on my period, same with the intense moodiness I usually get...some things never change

Okay, so first off? Being that you're on BC pills the sex was protected, not unprotected. In terms of STIs it was not protected, but was in terms of pregnancy - so about a month after you want to go ahead and get a full STI test done. It's very possible the delay is from the change in when you stopped taking pills (and also possibly from the missed pill throwing your cycle off a bit too) but given you did have sex since your last bleed you want to go ahead and take a test to be on the safe side.

Also? Did you miss the ill completely, or did you make it up when you realized it was missed?
