I had unprotected sex with my bf 2 Saturdays ago and it was drunk sex but he ejaculated inside of me. I missed 2 birth control pills the Saturday I had sex and then the Sunday after. I took 1 pill Monday and then another pill Tuesday, but stopped because I thought I may become pregnant and did not want anything to happen to the growing fetus. On Monday I decided to take a pill since I started to bleed I thought it was my period but its just very light bleeding. I did have some cramping but very mild, was sick had throat irritation and stuffy nose, boobs hurt only 1 day, when I stick my finger in my vagina the blood is very red but stretchy discharge. Also when I stick my finger in my vagina it does not feel the same its like a ball is in there. Also when i wipe there is only light reddish pink blood that comes on the tissue not heavy bleeding and no clotting. Could I be pregnant? I am going to take a test tomorrow.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have missed your birth control pills you can be at risk for pregnancy. If you had stopped taking the birth control pills, the bleeding that you experienced could have been the withdrawal bleeding. The symptoms that you describe (lighter bleeding, abdominal cramps, throat irritation, stuffy nose, sore breasts, altered vaginal discharge) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. 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). 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.
Take care.
