Hi... A friend and I were talking about our bc and withdrawal bleeds. She was trying to tell me that getting your withdrawal bleed doesn't guarantee you're not pregnant. Is she correct? I've asked a similar question here before... But now my friend's got me worrying. Thanks in advance.
If you get your withdrawal bleed -- that is, at the usual time, a usual length, and a usual heaviness of flow -- you can be sure you aren't pregnant. Any bleeding someone might get while pregnant looks pretty different from a period -- usually quite a lot lighter flow and for shorter lengths of time -- so you would likely notice a difference. Plus the majority of women DON'T have bleeding while pregnant, so that'd be IF it even occurred.
