Possibility of pregancy
I am currently on Triphasil ( for the past 6 months). I have had regular, predictable periods (28 day cycle) with no problems. I experienced a bout of gastro around day 20 of my cycle and I am not sure if my pill on that day gave me protection. I had sex on the 19th, 20th and 21st day of this cycle. My period is due today but I have only had very light brownish clear discharge ( very little). This is abnormal for my first day of my periods. I am also experiencing the need to urinate frequently.
I am not sure if there is a possibility that I could be pregnant ? Please advise and when should I do a pregnancy test

If you do not have a proper period in the next two or three days then do a pregnancy test.
