Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hi I started the mini pill on 30/07/12 and then had unprotected sex on 31/07/12 with my husband and got it into my head on 04/08/12 that I was pregnant (I know that there is no way what so ever for me or my body to know this but just got it into my head) so I stopped the pill on the 04/08 as if I am pregnant my husband and I want to keep it. We had unprotected sex again on the 04/08 and yesterday (06/08) I had my withdrawal bleed from the pill (although i was only on it for 5 days) this only lasted a day and was dark in colour sorry if TMI.
My worry is, is could of I even become pregnant and does that withdrawal bleed mean that I am not?!
Its far too early to test and not due my period for another 2 weeks ( due on 19/08), just managed to get this mad idea into my head and cant seem to shift it.
Havent got any symptoms apart from indigestion (but then I sometimes suffer with that anyway)
Any advice is appreciated.

Did you start your pill on the first day of your cycle?
If you took your first pill on the first day of your cycle and then had sex the next day then the only way you could be pregnant is if the pill failed (highly unlikely), as your covered straight away. If you started your pill mid cycle then the advice is to use condoms for 7 days to allow the pill to get to work.
With regards to you stopping your pill again on the 4th and having unprotected sex 2 days later you could be pregnant if you ovulate very early in your cycle and the pill hormones left your body very quickly. Again very unlikely unless your on a low dose pill for some reason? There's a small risk. You wouldn't know until your period is due anyhow. But taking the pill on and off may affect when and how heavy your period may be.
Did you want to be pregnant? If you're worried about taking the pill in case you're pregnant, i would stop the pill and use condoms (if you don't want to get pregnant) and then re-start it again on the first day of your next period.
