Go to a clinc

could this be a pregnancy, im really scared about this i know if i wasnt ready i shouldn't have sex, but wat are the chances that its pregnancy, please help? with clinics do they call/tell your parents im still a minor.

Absolutely not! They can not give out personal information unless its an emergency type of thing. What you need to do is call your local free clinic like Planned Parenthood or Family Guidence Clinic and make an appointment to get a blood test. If you have no income and since your a minor I take it you don't, the test should cost you very little if anything at all. But when you do go you will fill out some information and privacy forms too which you should note your parents don't know about this visit and you would like to keep everything confidental. Now since you stop taking you pills you could be having some withdrawl blooding which you might or might not be pregnant. Since you have been on the pills its a lower chance your pregnant if you took them right. But to keep your mind at ease I would make an appointment and find out for sure whether or not you are! Good Luck and God Bless!

okay i started my period, but its different it stared today 1/18/07 at 7am and now its 1035pm and its very light like it is ending my period are heavy to med. flow for around 3-4 days and last a whole 6-7 day even when on the pill. there is also no clots and i thought that with a period there should be clots atleast i have always had them. i have one more quick questions could these be preg signs if its only been a month if you were to be preg, more emotional, increase in hunger, eat more but lose weight but just a little like 2-3, a little bite more tired, boobs sometimes hurt but not all the time and they have gotten a little fuller?

AnswerYes you could go to your doctor and have them test you.
BCP can make your period last 1-3 days and be very light. But if you've been on BCP for a while and this isn't normal period for you - then it's possible you could be pregnant.

On hormonal Birth Control you no longer menstruate - the pill for example will stop your menstrual cycle in order to stop ovulation and as you don't ovulate you don't menstruate. The bleeding women get on the pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills, it mimics menstruation but isn't the same thing as menstruation.

A withdrawal bleed can be lighter than a menstrual bleed, the pill also prevents secondary uterine lining build-up as a back-up means of preventing pregnancy: less uterine tissue means lighter bleeding.
