Customer Question

Hi. So I had unprotected sex about 7 days ago ( last weekend) , I take birth control around the same time everyday and haven't missed it. On Tuesday I got a yeast infection ( I get them farely often so to say- I am in chlorine a lot too) that went away Thursday and Thursday night I got a light period , not heavy just a little below average it seems to be gone now. What could be the cause of this? Should I be worried I might be pregnant?

If you are on birth control theres not much reason to,worry about pregnancy. This may be breakthrough bleeding. A common side effect of the pill. What week are you on.

Ok. So this is middy le bleeding. And it's just a side effect that sometimes occurs.
