I am supposed to get my period next wednesday or thursday. I am on birth control and have been taking it as directed. I have been a lot more stressed than usual this month. I also had sex February 1st while on the pill however without a condom; he pulled out. I am wondering if there is a chance I am pregnant or if I am having an early period due to stress. I did take a pregnancy test today that said 'not pregnant'. Should I continue the rest of my pills this week? It appears to look like old blood; brown discharge.
Yes, definitely keep taking your pills. You won't be pregnant. It is likely that you are experiencing breakthrough bleeding, a common side effect of birth control pills. This will not affect the pills and as long as you keep taking them correctly you will be protected from pregnancy.
