i have missed loads of my pills this month and have had unprotected sex, i came on my period yesterday (it was like spotting) and it has gone today. I was not due on till monday, so 5 days early, is there a chance i could be pregnant?
It is quite possible that you might be pregnant, given the absence of taking your birth control pills and having unprotected sex. When you miss several pills, the ovary has an opportunity to produce an egg because the hormones from the birth control pills are not sufficient to prevent ovulation. You might want to take a pregnancy test and if it is negative, repeat it again in one week.
