Bleeding Day After Intercourse

Me and my boyfriend have been dry humping and doing foreplay because we know we are both not ready to be parents. I started taking birth control pills three weeks ago and last night we did the usual. However this time, he accidentally slid and and immediately pulled out and finished. We both dont think that any was released inside, but we are both a bit paranoid. This morning however, I started getting low cramps and I've had light bleeding that looks like it has a slight mucus texture. What does it mean? Does it have to do with the birth control pill?

Jade, the bc pills should have you protected from pregnancy. The cramps can't be from pregnancy - one day is not enough time for implantation to get started. The slight bleeding could be that your hymen was complaining about the intrusion. Best of luck going forward.

BC pills plus condoms would be double protection from parenting, if you feel like going that way.
