Could I be pregnant?

    Hi, I had been on the pill (2 different ones) for a year and a half, but last month i took a break from it because it was causing me to become depressed. I went off it for a month.

    I got my period on 3rd February 2012 but didnt start back on my pill (a different one) on the first day of my period but started on the 6th February 2012, I know I should have used extra protection for 7 days now, but had unprotected sex with my bf 5 days after that on the 10th Feb, even though I was not fertile until 14th Feb and not "ovulating" until 17th Feb and by that time the pill would be active is there still a chance of me being pregnant?

    The only way to know for sure is to test.

    Unless you have tracked your ovulation cycles, they can vary from woman to woman, and are not necessarily 14 days into your cycle. I had short cycles, so I ovulated around day 10/11. As well as that, your cycles would be a little out of whack coming off the pill and can take a little while to settle into a pattern.

    If you use a highly sensitive test (clearblue or first response) on your first morning urine it may show a possible pregnancy, but if it was a negative test you would need to repeat it either at the end of this week or next week to double check the result.

    Sounds like you could be, get a clear blue test, no mistaking them!
