I have been on birth control for a few years, everything has been normal. I had sex without a condom on November 20th and missed a pill sometime after that, I realized it on the 30th and took 2. Since then, I have been having very dark discharge. Could I be pregnant? Or is this normal?

Welcome to ehealthforum

If you have been taking the pills regularly other than which you missed then chances of pregnancy are remote.Since you took two pills together it might be possible that you are experiencing the effect of the pill intake as it would have increased hormonal levels in blood and that is presenting as dark discharge.
Also if you forget a pill it is to be taken immediately and not after few days.The bleeding might subside in few days time.
Take care!
