I had sex on december 27th. He pulled out before he finished. I have been on the pill for 2 1/2 years and haven't missed a pill in like a year. I had my period on december 31st. It was a normal period. This month I have been cramping, which i have done one other month. I started spotting while i still had four active pills left and 7 days before i should start my period. I am cramping and have sore breast like a usual period, but I am scared about the spotting. I have tried to figure out if i would be fertile and if i could possibly be pregnant. I took a pregnancy test two days ago and it was negative. soneone please tell me if i could be pregnant? thank you!

If you had your period after intercourse, the length was right and the amount and color of the blood were as usual, then you are not pregnant. The spotting might be due to mid-term bleeding that is caused by a hormonal imbalance. Go to see your gynecologist if the bleeding does not stop within several days or this condition reappears the next month.
