No. What you had was called a 'Withdrawl Bleed'. Had you taken the pill for the entire duration of the course (21 days) you would have had a longer withdrawl bleed. If you have now discontinued taking the pill you will have a regular period shortly, which may be slightly heavier than you would normally have.

You stopped taking birth control after day 6 of your pill pack then 3 days later you had bleeding for 2 days does that count as your period because you had your regular period more than a week before?

continue your pill sequence as if no bleeding occured, but it is advised that you use a "backup" method of birth control as condoms for the next 2 weeks

I was on the pill (Yasmin) for 5 years and got my period 4 days after I stopped taking it. Everyone is different though.

If you take Yasmin continuously, you will get withdrawal bleeding when you get to the next rest period. You may also have unexpected spotting or breakthrough bleeding.

You stopped taking pills three days ago and now you have bad lower stomach pain and bleeding what does this mean?

to be honest this sounds like the regular bleeding you are supposed to have on your "off week" or your "sugar week" when you miss a pill or a patch you will spot.. and if you stop completely you will have a regular period.

What are the chances of getting pregnant if you stopped the pill just over a week ago due to antibiotics and had sex 4 days before your period but got your period 2 days early and it was very light?

extremely slim. I do not think you could get pregnant. I don't understand why you stopped taking the pill because you were taking antibiotics. I do know that some women have gotten pregnant while on the pill because they were taking antibiotics. However, 2 weeks into the cycle you can conceive. If not the body releases the egg, that's the period.. The bleeding is the period, in between the bleedings is called the cycle.
