17 and might be pregnant?

Im 17, and have a normal cycle for a couple of years now. I started the pill a couple of months ago ( 6) its been 4 weeks since my last period but ive had spotting the last few weeks like last week i had one lot of blood then the week before another little bit. Im really careful me and my Boyfriend use a condom but once or twice ive forgotten to take my pill, could i be pregnant from pre cum ? p.s i am 6 days late im thinking of getting a test but i always over think these things could i be over thinking again?

UPDATE: i took a pregnancy test and it was negative

If you are nothing using the pill correctly (if you forget more than two you are not safe) and you are not using condoms consistently then there is a chance. Unlikely but it's there. So get a test and stop wondering. If you're not pregnant I'd see your gp for more suitable contraception (skin or uterine implant)


Get a test and stop procrastinating, if you are then see your doctor. Your not alone and there is lots of help and advise if you are!


Get a test and find out for sure. There's no point worrying unnecessarily. Stress isn't good for you. If you're not pregnant you could just need to change your contraception. I had spotting when using one type of pill so changed and the spotting stopped. My doctor insisted I take a pregnancy test before he would change it though. If you're struggling to remember to take it, either set an alarm for a time of day that suits you or think about trying a different type of contraception - e.g. injection/implant/coil.
