im on the pill, i forgot two pills this past weekend in a row and more a few days before (missed two but not in a row) and had unprotected sex. yes im an idiot i know, so dont mention it. the problem is, i think i had withdrawl bleeding but im not sure: it was quite bleeding, it was very light brown mucous and it lasted maybe 4-5 hrs. ????
but now i have quite heavy discharge today (5 days later after unprotected sex). is this normal for missing the pill or could i have ovulated and be pregnant? i have read that increased vaginal discharge is a sign of pregnancy but i also have not be noticing my normal vaginal fluid when i was taking my pill correctly. so if you are on the pill and have a stage of heavy clear, watery fluid is this normal (around day 19/20 of your pack) im on the pill to regulate my period and in a stable relationship so me being pregnant would not be a train smash, i just dont want to stop the pill if im not preg.

any insight?

Sarah answered you well in your previous post:;f=28;t=003532;p=1#000000

We can't really tell you if you ovulated or not, or what the increased discharge could be. I agree with Sarah to take a pregnancy test around 2 weeks after the time you had intercourse. There are no symptoms of pregnancy this early except for a positive test result.

You likely experienced a bit of withdrawal bleeding due missing so many pills. Continue to take them as normally as possible until you can call your doctor or clinic for instructions as to what to do next. Unknowingly taking birth control pills during early pregnancy has not been shown to cause any birth defects, and a pregnancy test will not be affected.
