I tried asking this via the texting service but with two strait days of no replay I have to turn here.

I had sex with my boyfriend a week from today. We used a condom and it broke, my boyfriend didn't ejaculate and so he "pulled out". I am a perfect pill user so I felt that EC was no necessary or anything. About 6 days later (this Friday) I had some cramps and EXTREMELY light spotting (if I wasn't waring white undies I wouldn't have noticed it. My period isn't due for 12-13 days.

I'm freaking out. I'm scared and I can't function or eat or anything. Please talk to me. This can't be happening to me. I was being SAFE!

Since your boyfriend didn't ejaculate inside you, you effectively used the withdrawal method. Add that to you being on the pill and you effectively had two forms of contraception working for you. [Smile]

Spotting is not an uncommon side effect of being on the pill, even if you haven't experienced it before. Likewise with mild cramping.

I know. And I am very glad to have someone else say it. I have NEVER had this happen to me since I've been on the pill for months and months.

=s I'm glad I'm over thinking and worrying. I think I might be able to eat dinner now =)
