Hello, I have a quick question: I've read online that some women still get their withdrawal bleed even though they are pregnant. Is this true? I'm just asking because I'm on the pill and even though I had my withdrawal bleed-It seemed pretty normal to me- last month and have only engaged in manual sex, I still worry...;I'm supposed to have my withdrawal bleed in two days and have been feeling nauseous. I haven't done anything that would pose a risk this month, which has made me wonder whether I had had a risk last month, but didn't know it and am now feeling the effects?

It is not possible to get a withdrawal bleed or a period and still be pregnant. If you've had a regular withdrawal bleed during your last placebo week, and you haven't done anything since that could cause a risk, you do not need to worry about pregnancy.
Nausea could be due to a ton of different things, so I'd not jump to the conclusion of pregnancy, especially if you haven't had a recent risk.
