I was on tri-sprintec for about three weeks , okay back in 2011 I was on the depo spot and I hated it after 3 months I never went back and got the second shot and my period want back to normal 3 years later (back in 2014) I found out I had an ovartian cyst (very painful) my period STOPED for about 10months !! My doctor said nothing to worry about most likely from stress . So I recently started the birth control pills (AUGUST 2015) the first week and a half I was taking the pills perfectly , then as the end of the second week came I started to take the pills @ different times , also having unprotexted sex ( pull out method ) @ the third week I would miss a pill then take a pill then miss it again , then just completely stopped !! I had very bad cramps about 2 days later then a period ( I think it was a period ) started very light and very brownish then become medium and regular blood about the third day , all in total it lasted about 6 days , as I was spotting I had unprotected sex again but didn't know I was spotting till after the sex !! (Pull out method , lol sooooo my question is what's the possibility of me being pregnant , what should I do now ??? I'm thinking about getting on the iud because I can't remember to take pills everyday !!HELLLP
What you do now & whether you are pregnant, very much depend on when you had unprotected sex.
If it was less than 72 hours ago, you can take Plan B emergency pill.
If it was less than 5 days ago, you can have the EllaOne emergency pill, or have a coil/IUD fitted, to prevent pregnancy.
If it was longer than that, then it's just a case of waiting to do a pregnancy test once your period is late, to know if you're pregnant.
I think the best thing to do is to make an appointment with your Doctor or Family Planning Clinic, to discuss all your birth control options & find one that suits you.
