I am on a monthly birth control and i usually always get my period when i am supposed to (the last week when i dont take the pill). However, this month i got my period while i was on vacation for 5 days during the 2nd week while i was taking pills. Now i am on the week where i dont take pills and i thought i got my period because i thought i had a tinyyyy bit of brown something but it only lasted for a day. Does this mean i skipped a period? Am i pregnant? I am not sure what this means and it would be of great help to get some answers. thank you!

It could just be that you're having a bit of a wonky cycle - it happens sometimes, even with hormonal birth control. Travel is something that can definitely mess with a cycle, particularly if that travel involves time changes which can make it difficult to take a pill on time every day.

Per pregnancy, if you've been taking your pills properly, pregnancy is pretty unlikely, but you may want to take a test just for the reassurance.
