... sunday and he came in me. Took pill number 8 but then started experiencing bleeding that hasn't stopped. I have stopped taking anymore of the pills, is there a possibility that I could be pregnant?
You should have taken 2 pills the next two days that you remembered. You are bleeding because of withdrawal of hormone. You should not have stopped taking the pills. Start a new pack, and use condoms for the first 7 days. Contrary to popular opinion, bleeding does not signal pregnancy, ABSENCE of bleeding does.
When you miss one pill, you take it as soon as you remember, even if you take two pills at the same time, then use back up, like condoms, for seven days, if you miss two pills, you take two pills the day you discover the miss and two pills the next day (this covers your two missed pills along with that days pill-you never want to take more than two pills in one day) then you use back up, like condoms, for seven days. If you miss three or more pills, you toss your current pack (or save them for spares) and immediately start a new pack. Yes, you will skip your inactive pills that months but more than likely you will bleed if you miss this many pills because your body senses the withdrawal of hormone and this signals the bleed. When you start this new pack you will use back up condoms for the first seven days, just like starting over. Since you stopped your pills, you need to just start over with a new pack and use the back up condoms or abstain for the first seven days of the new pack. If you are bleeding, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. The Pill has not been shown to harm a fetus, if you would happen to be pregnant. If you did find out for sure that you are pregnant you would want to stop taking them but up until that point, it is better for you to continue them and be protected because chances are good that you wont get pregnant.
