One of the main ways that the pill works to prevent pregnancy is by preventing ovulation. So, you won't ovulate.

If you've taken your pill correctly so far in the pack you're taking now, you can feel confident that you have your pill's full protection again. You don't need to be concerned about the missed pill last month any more - as you've been taking your new pack for over a week now, your new pack definitely has you covered.

No, it wouldn't be. For a start, you're taking the pill, so there's no reason to think you would become pregnant.

More generally, it still wouldn't. When a pregnancy is created from intercourse, there's a whole process that has to happen. Implantation is the end of that process, and that happens anywhere from 5 days to 2 weeks after intercourse. So, bleeding during or straight after intercourse? Not going to be implantation bleeding.

From the questions you're asking, it's sounding like you'd be really helped out by more information about reproduction and about how your pill works. Our in-depth piece on reproduction is: Human Reproduction: A Seafarer's Guide
How the fertility and menstrual cycle works when someone is NOT using the pill or other hormonal contraception: On the Rag: A Guide to Menstruation
And how your pill works: How do birth control pills really work, even during the placebo period?

Sex being a little too rough, or someone having a jagged nail if fingers are being used, can cause bleeding. The vaginal wall is delicate and can get small injuries. If it's just a little bleeding and it stops fairly quickly, it should heal up by itself pretty quickly and it's no cause for concern. You'll just want to be gentle with yourself for a few days. For the future, using more lubricant (or starting using lubricant, if you don't already) makes small injuries less likely.

Also, are you up-to-date on your sexual healthcare and STI testing?

You're welcome [Smile]

I asked about STI testing because sometimes an STI or other infection can cause bleeding during or after sex, so it's good to rule those out. Sounds like you have that sorted, though [Smile]

No. STI stands for sexually transmitted infection - they aren't infections that will spontaneously generate through the act of sex, but ones that can be transferred from someone who's already infected to someone who isn't, through sexual activity.

That's why testing is so important - if both partners have had comprehensive STI testing with no positive results, it's less likely that one will transfer an infection to the other.

Yes, if your withdrawal bleed comes at the right time, is the same length and same flow as usual, you can be sure you're not pregnant.
