How long has your girlfriend been on the pill? The first few months of pill use can often leave withdrawal bleeds wonky or absent.

She usually won't get a bleed until she's been off the active (colored) for at least a few days. You can choose to either wait for her period, or she can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after your last risk.

You seem overly anxious about this, given this is among a number of times you've posted worried about pregnancy. Why not discuss with your girlfriend the benefits of perhaps using another method of birth control to back up her pill use, for your peace of mind?

That's probably just a bit of spotting before she gets her period. That's a sign that everything's okay. She can still take a pregnancy test to make sure if it's been 10-14 days after the last risk.

Whatever happened, though, to your resolution to practice safer sex? You've been told countless times that you can avoid scares just like this one by simply putting on a condom. If you can't handle that, or if even two methods of contraception can't put your mind to rest, it's time to seriously reconsider whether or not you're ready for intercourse.

From the Guidelines:

We may state that we will no longer answer a given user's questions on a given topic if:
• that user has already been answered, in depth by one or more staff and volunteers, but continues to ask the same question,
• has had more than THREE pregnancy scares and/or STI scares we have addressed but continues to take risks which present those scenarios after we have advised a user at least three times as to how to practice sex more responsibly

In accordance, we will no longer reply to your posts on pregnancy scares, since we've already provided you with all the information you need to choose to prevent them. We will be happy to address all other concerns or questions you may have.
