Im 17. I was on the pill, but frequently forgot to take it or would take it at different times, yet I had unprotected sex more than a few times a week. Actually, we never use protection. When I got to the reminder pills at the end of the month I just stopped taking them completely because I was so unreliable about taking them anyways, and planned to go to the doctor to find a better method for myself. That was about 4 or 5 days ago. Last time I stopped taking the pill (about a year ago, for different reasons) I immediately got my period about a day or two later. And I always get my period on the reminder pill days anyways. I still haven't gotten my period, but I'm having weird spotting that is light pinkish-red and very light. Could it be implantation bleeding? Should I be worried?

The only way you will know for certain is by testing. It could be your body reacting to the changes in hormone if you've recently stopped taking the pill. However if you have been relying upon the pill alone for contraception & know that you haven't been taking it as you should then there is always going to be that chance of you falling pregnant.
At this stage a trip to your Dr might be a good idea. Either they will tell you you aren't pregnant & help you sort out alternative contraception or they will tell you that you are pregnant & discuss what happens next.

Hey Im having kinda the same problem!
I stopped the depo a few months ago then went straight to pills and then stopped those after the first pack.. after i had breakthrough bleeding (im pretty sure thats what it was) i didnt get a period for over 4 months.. and finally this month i started to but it was light pink like barley noticable.. and only when i wiped. the next morning i had some red and i put in a tampon..sorry TMI.. and when i took it out there was nothing at all.. so i just put a pad in my panties and waited to see through the day what came out but only light brown. i thought it was short so i didnt worry about it and then i felt like i was wet so i checked and i had bright red blood but not heavy.. so again i put in a tampon and then when i took it out very little red and mostly dark brown. and it kept doing that to me on and off all week long.. and it got lighter and lighter now all i have is light brown. today i had a pad down and i had light brown discharge.. and then nothing at all so idk. all this month my breasts have been sore, beyond beliefe.. and i have been so nausouse. i need help, am i having implantation bleeding or is this just because i was on depo about 6 months ago..
