    Could I be pregnant?
    An_267466 posted:
    I had unprotected sex in January. I started birth control pills shortly after, I had a heavy period and then a regular period and then spotting last month. Could I be pregnant? I don't have any of the symptoms I had with my first pregnancy. Thanks

    Birth control will sometimes cause your period to become lighter and some women will even skip a period here and there while on birth control.

    If you think you may be pregnant from the January encounter (unlikely since you had a period after that), take a test.
