Welcome to ehealthforum,
Do not depend on appearance of symptoms alone to suggest pregnancy possibility. Few women can experience all the symptoms, whereas few women do not experience any. The delayed periods and lighter bleeding could be an indication of pregnancy possibility. Wait and watch for your periods or observe the current bleeding. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Thank you for that, im freaking out even more now even though it was protected and everything i don't understand the condom didnt break at all and my periods there still like a bit heavy just not as normal well sometimes there not heavy and the blood isnt brown or anything its just normal red and has the normal clots and stuff? I can't tell my mum she will get heaps angry and when ever i talk to her about the pill she just shuts me down :/
