I am on birth control shots but had sex My

Patient: I am on birth control shots but had sex.. My period should be any time but has turned out spotty instead unlike usually.. But I have had cramps.. Could I be pregnant?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Abnormal spotting, reduced flow in bleeding can be possible when you are on birth co ntrol pills. However, do a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy as no contraceptive is hundred percent effective.Hope this helped.Regards
