I'm 18 years old and I've been on the Pill for 5 months now. My boyfriend and I use condoms about 90% of the time but this past weekend we forgot them and had sex multiple times using the pullout method. I'm pretty educated on pre ejaculation and I am aware that it can still cause pregnancy even if I'm using birth control. I'm very good about taking my pill at the same time everyday. But lately I've had some very very light spotting that looks like brown/red blood and I'm not sure why. No pain or cramps or anything. Now usually I will always take the placebo pills to get my period but this past month I skipped them and started straight into my next pack of birth control because I didn't want to have my period while I was at the beach. I'm wondering if that may have something to do with it? Next week will be when I have the placebo pills again and this time I plan to take them. Which also make me ask, if I was pregnant and took the placebo pills would I still get a period? How would I know if I was pregnant?
