In an earlier post I asked if it was ok to take a pregnancy test now that it's been 15 days since I last had sex. I've been on the pill for the last year, and although I haven't always been a perfect user, last month I was very good about taking my pills on time. There was one day though, when I took my pill about an hour late and I engaged in sexual activity. My boyfriend and I usually use condoms in conjuction with me being on the pill, but not 100% of the time. :s My boyfriend and I were pretty rough and I was a bit sore afterwards. I even bled a bit the week after. Could that be cause for concern?

So I took the home preg test yesterday and it came up negative. I'm due to start my withdrawal bleed this week too, but it hasn't started yet. Is it safe to say I'm in the clear? Should I take another test? :s

To significantly compromise protection on the pill, you really have to miss two pills to compromise protection. A late or missed pill here or there generally does not lower effectiveness significantly, so there was no cause for worry. The pregnancy test you took was accurate.

I'd guess the bleeding is from being rough, especially if you weren't using any extra lubricant. Just lay off penetrative play for a week or so to make sure you're all healed up, and you should be good to go. [Smile]

I forgot to mention that while I was experiencing the bleeding, urination was a bit uncomfortable. It didn't feel like burning though... and it eventually went away.
