Using a hormonal birth control method together with condoms is really as close to zero as pregnancy risks get. If you've used both consistently, the chance of pregnancy is really null.

Sometimes, a woman will skip a withdrawal bleed while on the pill for no reason. Most information leaflets will say that this is nothing to be concerned about as long as all the pills in the pack have been taken correctly. [Smile]

well I did kind of spot. And Ive only been on this brand of pills for a couple of months.

The condom broke once, but I took a PLAN B immediately and correctly.

All I can afford is a pregnancy test from the dollar store. Think it would be effective?

Babe, there was no pregnancy risk, okay? Plan B was totally unnecessary if you took your pills as directed; they were working even if the condom didn't.

My best guess is that the Plan B is throwing off your normal cycle, especially taken in conjunction with birth control pills.

If you'd still like to take a pregnancy test for your peace of mind, go for it. The ones from dollar stores are just as effective as name-brand tests. [Smile]
