My boyfriend and i fooled around last weekend. I am on orthotricylen and have been for the past three years. We had sex for a minute at the most and he did not cum inside me, he came an hour or so later during oral sex. My periods are very regular and i have had a consistent 28 day cycle for at least two years. this would have happened on day 17. This morning, i kinda had a light brown bloody discharge and had light period-type cramps, even though my period is not due for another 8 days. Whats going on and what are my pregnancy risks?

Assuming that you've been taking the pill correctly (every day at about the same time each day) then you shouldn't have a pregnancy risk. Taken correctly the pill is 99%+ effective for preventing pregnancy. So don't worry about that.

You do have an STD risk from having sex without a condom, so you and your partner should both get tested. Two tests each, six months apart, and a long term monogamous relationship and you can consider you and your partner pretty much clean. If you don't need this lecture, that's okay, I still like to give it.

As for what is causing your symptoms, I don't know. The brown color suggests that it was old blood that perhaps just sloughed off early. And the cramps could be anything - just disagreable food perhaps. But if you continue to have bloody discharge when it's not your placebo week, you should see your doctor.

I do usually take it within an hour or so of each other every day, around 8-8:30 in the morning. But i was late in gettinh my prescription filled and missed one pill. I did take the missed pill on that monday, along with Monday's pill, so it really wasnt missed, just late. Does trhis change anything or am i still protected?

And you fooled around the following weekend? I think that the risk should still be rather minimal. If you are still worried you can always take a pregnancy test 10-15 days after it happened.

Mo, this was not the following weekend. I started my new pill pack on September 5, was supposed to start on the fourth. I took two pills on the 5th, and the incident happened on September 18th. I dont know if that changes anything, but i hope that i was more protected then! Does that help?
