I am worried that I am pregnant. I haven't missed a pill at all, but the first week of my new pack I started taking about 2.5 weeks ago, me and my boyfriend went to the beach so I took the pills at a later time than normal, I was wondering if that could've caused me to ovulate and become pregnant. We have only had sex 4-6 times.. and I am supposed to get my period this week, I start my sugar pills Sunday. Yesterday we had sex and (note he always pulls out) afterwards I have some pink bleeding and I woke up this morning still bleeding, is it implantation or just pre period bleeding?? ( I almost always bleed a tad after sex)

A few hours delay once or twice does not matter a much, if the pill is a combined pill and not a minipill one.However,you have now your cycle and this indicates you are non-pregnant at present.
Two points I need to mention here.If you are a regular pill user, there is no issue to withdraw.
Secondly. if there is repeated episodes of bleeding following sex; you definitely need a checkup as this is not considered a normal issue.
