i had sex on Monday. I missed my pill on Tuesday, and didn't even take it late. i haven't had sex since Monday. how likely is it that i could get pregnant?
also, something like a period started on Friday. although, it's really light and more like a dark brown-tinted discharge. my period's not due for another week-and-a-half now. i figure it's just because my hormone levels dropped and then went back up the next day, causing some breakthrough bleeding, and it's nothing to worry about. but i just wanted to make sure...

What you're describing sounds like breakthrough bleeding due to a missed pill. If you're concerned you can call you doctor just to check, or consult the literature that comes with your medication. My question is, why didn't you take the pill, even if it was late? I'm fairly certain most pills tell you to take it anyway, even if it's much later.

thank you.
i didn't take the late pill because when i remembered, it was time to take my next pill. so i had popped out the pill i missed, and realized it was for the wrong day. i dropped it outside in the dark when i was trying to pop out the pill for the right day as well, and couldn't find it.
