Typically, my period lasts for 6 days and I get at least 2 days of really heavy red flow.

This month, I've had my period for three days and the flow is weak and brown and doesn't appear to be getting any stronger.

I had unprotected sex. Is this flow from an egg embedding in the wall?

or is it the fact that my body is in its third month of adjusting to Ortho-Tricylene Low?

If you've been taking your pills correctly and haven't missed any pills, you can pretty much assume this isn't from pregnancy. I'd say it's probably a safer bet that your body is just reacting to the birth control and it may be your periods will become lighter and of similar consistancy from now on, or it could just be this cycle.

If it would ease your mind further, you could take a prgnancy test 10-14 days from when your pregnancy risk was, but I'd be willing to bet this is a birth control and withdrawl-bleed thing, and you're not pregnant.
