I have been on birth control about 7 months now. Recently I have been really bad about taking them everyday, missing up to 3 days a week so doubling up everyday to make up for the day. I am sexually active with one person and we normally always use a condom. Just recently I let him release inside of me.
I have two worries now...Is my birth control still a contraceptive if I haven't been taking them as perscribed and also, my period is late and I have been getting spotty red and brown discharge instead. Also, most mornings I have been sleeping badly due to intense heart burns at night lasting well into the morning.
