I am spotting a brown/red mucuos discharge. It really surprised me because my period isnt due for two weeks. I was wondering if i could possibly be pregnant. I had a child in March and have been on birth control for nine months now. However, the day after my last period my boyfriend and I had sex and i did not take my birth control that night, and i missed a couple doses the week before. What are the chances I am pregnant?
no one can just tell you you're pregnant. birth control pills can cause break through bleeding no matter how long you've been taking them. missing the pill does put you at an increased risk for getting pregnant. i would go buy a home pregnancy test and see what your results are or just wait to see if you miss your period.
There is a chance, and to be safe a would take a pregnancy test to be sure. The brown/red discharge would not be a sign of pregnancy, but missing pills could put you at risk for pregnancy. Good luck either way :)
