    Hi,

    New to this but just found a link and thought someone might have experienced something similar here. Basically, my boyfriend and I are 25 and have been talking about children but nothing serious really. I've been taking the pill (cilest) for about 4 years, have always taken it as advised and have never had any problems. A couple of weeks ago, however, I had my 7 day break as usual (bleeding as usual) and completely forgot to take the next two days worth meaning a 9 day break. I then took it for the next two days as normal. We were having unprotected sex during these few days.
    At the weekend we really talked about it all and have decided we were going to stop taking cilest all together and see what nature decided, so the last 5 days again no pill. Today then I discover a kind of pink discharge with a few spots of blood. Naturally, being at work with quite a bit of time on my hands (!) I've been looking at various websites and have noticed a lot about imlpantation bleeding. Surely this can't be happening so early, can it? Anyone had anything similar or know of this happeneing within 2 weeks max?

    Looking forward to getting some clarity before I start to panic/elate!!

    With Cilest, if you have missed ONE or TWO pills, you will still be protected against pregnancy but if you forget to take THREE or more pills, you aren't be protected against pregnancy, which in theory means that in the two days you forgot to take your pill, you are unlikely to have gotten pregnant.
    As the Pill is a synthetic oestrogen and progesterone, it is more likely that the pink coloured bleeding is simply a progesterone withdrawal bleed.

    Wishing you the best of luck however, hope your baby dancing days a few! lol
