Hi, I am 28 and came off the pill Qlaira 26+2 (estradiol valerate/dienogest). Had small brown spotting during 23,24 day while on pill (tough that was withdrawal bleed). Period (or real withdrawal bleed) came 17 days after last active tablet. My question is, which of those was withdrawal bleed and what is the chance to get pregnant if I had unprotected intercourse during bleed in day 17,20 after last active tablet? Can I treat last bleed as first day of new cycle with real menstruation? When I was on qlaira (1 year) from last 3 months had no bleeding at all between wallets but def no pregnant. Now I am not sure when eventually my ovulation will occur. How to pick no fertile days/ I am so confused.. Thank you
Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that you can get pregnant just about any time you have unprotected intercourse and are not using regular birth control. Don't forget about emergency contraception in that event. Also, I would advise waiting for up to 3 months to see if your cycle is going to straighten itself out and become regular. Until you are having regular periods, it is difficult to know which period was the "real" period. If your cycles haven't normalized after 3 months, call your doctor for some help! Good luck! Dr B
