Contraceptive pill disruptive cycle


Q: I recently took the pill around when my period was due to try and delay it.. i took it for about 7-10 days. in this time I had unprotected sex which would have fallen on my ovulation window. I had a short intermittent bleed after i stopped taking it. One week after the sexual activity I have began experiencing acid reflux (which I have only experienced previously with pregnancy), it is now day 12 after the sexual activity and the pregnancy test is negative... My normal next period is due end of next week, however I am not sure because of the bleed I had post pill wasn't my normal period - and maybe a withdrawal bleed?

Symptoms:  Acid reflux, tiredness
