The bleeding was normal and lasted for about the normal amount of time. I have worried myself by reading about bleeding in early pregnancy. I don't have symptoms of pregnancy other than an elevated temp, but I also have a cold, so it might be from that. I took 4 pregnancy tests--2 10 days after unprotected sex, and 2 14 days after, and all were negative. Is there still a possibility that I am pregnant?
Taking your pill 2 hours late is not too big a deal, you still have protection just maybe slightly decreased but still much better than none! It is the most effective if taken on time but you should be okay. "Implantation bleeding" is not all that common and is nothing like a normal period. If you have to take antibiotics though (if cold turns into secondary bacterial infection) you need to use condoms (yes, condoms) as back up protection the entire time you are on antibiotic and for 7 days after you finish the last antibiotic pill. You are most likely to be fine (not pregnant) so dont worry!
