spotting exactly 13 days after we had sex.

I had sex with my boyfriend on the 5th day of my period and I forgot to take my pills for the following next two days. Now I'm spotting, which is exactly 13 days after we had sex. Should I be worried?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Usually intercourse during periods is considered safe and chances of pregnancy are less.The bleeding which you have been experiencing might be due to the missed pills.You should consider having peotected intercourse for a week time.
If the bleeding is prolonged and heavy consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
Take care!
