I have been taking Femcon Fe (formally known as Ovcon) since March 2006. My periods have become lighter over the past year, but very steadily. I usually have a regular to light period for 4-5 days.

This last period was VERY light (only brown) and lasted only 3 days. I wouldn't be so concerned, but I was a few hours late taking one of my pills. Two days later I had sex with my boyfriend without a condom, although he did pull out before he came.

I was wondering what the chances of me being pregnant are, and why my period could have been so light. Is that normal?

Oh yeah, and this past month has been sort of stressful, and I've been exercising A LOT lately. Could that be affecting my period as well?

Thank you.
