about a month ago my boyfriend and i had manual sex and there may have been some ejaculate on his hand (not dripping, but possibly there) when he touched me. i've been on bc for five months (did the whole three-hour window thing, except for a point a few days after i saw my boyfriend when i took it 8 hours late), so at the time i wasn't too worried. got my period on schedule, except that it was unusually light. i asked my doctor who told me that the type of pill i'm on will sometimes lighten periods significantly or even cause them to go away completely. even so, i started to worry that this "period" i got wasn't really a period but some funky random bleeding.

nonetheless, i've been rather sore lately, with some breast tenderness, especially. my period is actually due in the next few days, but i'm still on the white (active) pills, not brown. can you still have pms symptoms while on the white pills, or does your body not know it's period time until you get to the brown?

so... scarleteen: thoughts? thanks.

Doesn't sound like there's a reason for concern. You've been taking the pills as directed, so you should be protected. Even if you hadn't been, the situation you describe is unlikely to pose a pregnancy.

So, I'd say I agree with your doctor: looks like you had a regular period that was just a little lighter. Than can happen with some types of hormonal birth control.
