Is my girlfriend Pregnant?
Ok, my girlfriend has been taking birth control since January 7th, 2009. But on Friday September 24th, 2010 she forgot to take her pill, so she took one on Saturday (25th), two on Sunday (26th) and has been taking the pill daily since then. On Monday (27th) her period was over, and on Tuesday afternoon (28th) we had sex, but on that same Tuesday night she started bleeding again. She thinks it might be her period again because of when she took the two pills on Sunday, but neither of us are sure. It is now October 8th, 2010 and she is still bleeding but not as heavily as when she started that Tuesday night. My girlfriend and I are worried that she might be pregnant. Can anyone please help us know what's going on?

It doesn't sound like pregnancy. Typically in pregnancy you do bleed like a period, and not for this long. It's likely to be from missing pills. If you're still worried, wait a few more days or another week and have her take a test with first morning urine. In the future though, if she misses pills you should use a backup form of birth control (such as condoms) for that next week just for safety precautions.
