I've been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen since last June, my first pill that I've ever taken and just skipped a cycle in mid feb to mid march and restarted after I had my normal period. I since took the pill for 3 weeks, had my usual period in the fourth week and then restarted last Tuesday.

I have sometimes spotted very little while taking the pills but never any big breakthrough bleeding.

I'm in a long distance relationship and had sex with my boyfriend last Thursday night/friday morning...just that one time. He didn't wear any protection cause I was on the pill...was our first time since mid february.

Any how to my point, I'm experiencing breakthrough bleeding right now. and it's going at a regular flow, not too heavy not too light...

I skipped my pill last night (Sunday night) but took two today.

I did a bit of reserach and some say it could be a sign of pregnancy and some say it could be stress...I am under a lot of stress right now and that could be the reason I'm blededing. But what are the chances of pregnancy? How long does break through bleeding usually last? Could this be becuase I skipped a month and then restarted the pill? Please get back to me quickly.

thank you very much....
ok...This is like a regular period now. I just really want to know if this is normal. I'm calling it 'break through bleeding' because that seems like the right word because I'm not supposed to have my period right now, but I'm not sure what it is really.

Just looking for someone to tell me if this is normal or not....and if this could be a pregnancy symptom. I'm not having any other pregnancy symptoms...
