Customer Question

I've been on bc since feb. For the months of april to july, I was taking the bc continuously (skipping my period). At the end of my last pack (the last 3 days of my active pills), I had what possibly was breakthrough bleeding that lasted about 2-3 days. The flow was light and the color was what appeared to be old blood (brown/rusty in color). The following week, which was my placebo week when I was expecting my period, it did not come. I took a pregnancy test, which was negative. When I started my new pack like I normally would on Sunday, 3 days into the pill I had unprotected sex. My question is should I be concerned about becoming pregnant? Should I consider buying Plan B?

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Did you skip any of the pills?

What is the name of the birth control you are taking?
