I was on my last week. My period normally starts on a tuesday or wednesday, but came on thursday but it's light, which i've never had. Could it possible be that i'm pregnant or is it just a late period?
When a oral contraceptive is taken, even correctly (same time every day, never missed) it is approximately 90-91% effective in preventing pregnancy. When a dose is missed it decreases these chances of preventing pregnancy, but missing a pill can also disturb the schedule of your period. There is a chance of being pregnant or that you are late, however, since you stated that your period was not only late, but also very light may be more of an indicator that you are pregnant. I would suggest a pregnancy test, or if you want to be on the safe side, the oral Plan B pill.
