Question: spot bleeding

 kelbel - Sat Jul 16, 2005 12:52 am

im on the pill & have been for about 5 months now. a few days ago, i have very brief unprotected sex and he did not finish in me. then about 2 days after that, i forgot my pill, but corrected it by taking the forgotten pill the next morning and then that days pill that night to catch me up like my doctor said to do. about a day after that, im having a form of spot bleeding. its not fresh blood, but more like old-blood, stained discharge. should i be worried?

User avatar This is probably due to missing the pill. Use back up form of protection for the next 7 days and everythign should be fine.
