No period, light spotting on Mini Pill

I have been on the mini pill since January because I was getting bad migraines on the combined birth control. Since then, I have had my period most months, but sometimes it comes every 5 or 6 weeks, depending on the month. I was supposed to get my period 3 weeks ago and missed it. Last night I started having light brown spotting, and it has continued lightly today. My boyfriend and I had sex last month and the condom broke 2 different times but before he finished, so he never went inside of me. I take my pill every night at 8, if not exactly at 8 then within 20 minutes. Could I be pregnant? I called my doctor and she said missing periods or having irregular bleeding on the pill is normal but I am still worried! Any answers would be great, thanks.

You need not be worried. If you are a regular pill user do not bother about pregnancy. Leave using condom if you are using it only to prevent pregnancy. Yes, you might have irregular cycle while on minipills. This is normal.Then why do not you opt for an IUD?
