So I was supposed to get my period on Wednesday, but it hasn't come yet. I've been on Minestrin 1/20 birth control for two months. But I did have something like a period from Saturday till late tuesday night. At first I thought it might be spotting, but it looked like "Period blood", so to speak. It was reddish, and somewhat heavy for a few days, like my normal period is. That day I had sex then went to the bathroom an hour or so later and noticed some bleeding. I assumed that my boyfriend had gone a bit too rough. But now, thinking back, the sex wasnt all that rough, I wasn't sore or anything after. Was that my period? if I don't bleed this week should I assume that I missed my period? I've never missed a pill and I always take them religiously, down to the minute, the latest i have been is one hour late. And Everytime I have had sex I have used a condom, and it has never broken. Did I miss my period? =(

If this is only your second month on the pill, you're likely still experiencing side-effects of starting birth control. In the first few months, it's completely normal to have early or late withdrawal bleeds.

If you've been taking the pill as directed and using condoms, then you don't need to worry about a pregnancy risk, anyway.
