    Could I be Pregnant?
    An_251613 posted:
    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was about 13 years old. Ive been on Levora birth control pill for about 2 months now and have never missed a pill. On April 18th I took my last Birth control pill for this month before started my placebo pills for starting my period. My period based on when it usually comes should have started on April 20th. Its now April 23rd and i'm having brownish/red but mostly brown discharge. I had unprotected sex on Saturday April 13th, Sunday April 14th, Monday April 15th, and Wednesday April 17th. My period has never been late before and ive never had this brownish/red spotting before hand. Whats going on?

    It's possible. Give it some time and take a pregnancy test or two. If in doubt, schedule an appointment with your gyn or PCP.
    It's also probably possible that your body is still adjusting to the new birth control - they usually say to give it at least 3 months to adjust.
    Another thought is that it just has to do with your PCOS. I'm sure you've probably heard that a million times... I know I do.

    Sorry that wasn't too much help - but, if you're in doubt, call your doctor's office and talk to one of the nurses; they should be able to give you more guidance or help you get an appointment!

    Since you've been on Levora for the past two months, you didn't engage in unprotected sex on those days. You've been on the birth control long enough that it would have protected you against an unwanted pregnancy.
