I have been taking Loestrin Fe1/20 for a month now. This guy and I have been having sex with a condom. I have only missed the pill once or twice and have taken it an hour later those nights I forgot. The thing is I had my period while I was on the third week of active pills. Is that normal? It lasted all that week. So instead of waiting to start my next pack of pills I started them right away. Well we decided to have sex without a condom but he pulled out. We both do not have any stds. How do I know for sure the bc is working correctly? Am I safe?
Can I be pregnant? Is the pill working?

I'm pretty sure it was a period because I had to use super tampons for five days. I'm still bleeding a lil bit but now not as much. Since I've only been on them a month am I good or should I talk to my doctor about a different pill?
You take them correctly and you can know its working. There is less then a 1% chance of pregnancy. Its not unusual to get breakthru bleeding at first. It wasn't your period it was breakthru bleeding. Your period will come only on the sugar pills. He can stop with the little attempts at birth control too, you don't ovulate when you're on the pill and without an egg it wouldn't matter what he does. Pulling out isn't a method of birth control anyway, btw.
