I'm on the mini pill and missed/was late with a few pills at a time that puts me at a high risk of getting pregnant, however, whenever I'm late or miss a pill I get breakthrough bleeding, which lasts for a few days and includes red blood, which is happening now. I stopped taking the pills in case I am indeed pregnant, though it's too early to test.
So, is it possible to be pregnant while you're having breakthrough bleeding related to hormone levels from missed pills? My guess would be yes, otherwise it doesn't make sense that you can't get pregnant by stopping/missing the pill. what's the point of bothering taking them routinely then?
Being that the mini pill totally whacks out my cycles, I have no clue when a period would be due. maybe it's now, maybe six weeks from now, but if I got pregnant it would have been no more than a week ago, hence I think it's too early to be testing.
