I am on a monophasic birth control (same strength hormones each week) & I take 3 pill packs consecutively before I have a period. I am on the second week of my third pack, meaning I have 1 more week before my suspected period. I had unprotected sex 6 days ago and I have a strong feeling I am pregnant because I was taking antibiotics for part of the pack. After the sex, I lightly spotted for 2 days but it has stopped. Should I stop taking my birth control for now and see if I get my period? Thanks in advance
When were you on the antibiotics? When did they stop? No you should not stop taking them. You should go to the end of the active pills then allow a period. If you don't have a period, wait a week and test for pregnancy. Do not stop your pill schedule until you are positive that you are pregnant.
