An_249103 posted:
I started the my pill on the 11/11/12. I have approximately 11 days left until my next period. I have been having sex but only using a condom before he ejaculates. I started spotting a bit yesterday and today i have cramping. We had intercourse last night. Can you tell me why i am spotting and cramping? Could i be pregnant?
