Am I pregnant?

If I had sex the first day after my period, & the only contemraception we used was my birth control pill, does hat give me a muh better game of being pregnant?
Because 4 days after my finished period, & 3 after sex I ha spotting in my underwear & that has never happened to me before.
Or is it just a side effect of birth control, because I've only been on birth control for about 3 months.

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that the spotting you experienced is probably due to the pill.  Irregular bleeding or spotting is very common right after beginning pills.  I ALWAYS advise doing a pregnancy test though, any time there is any unusual bleeding, it is a good idea to rule that out!
Good luck!
