Patient : I stopped taking my contraceptive pill mid cycle because I believed it was causing acne. I had sex the day before stopping my pill without a condom. I had a bleed about a week later, and now, over 5 weeks later, have not had a bleed. I had spotting in my underwear last night which I believed to be my period but now it has just stopped completely. I am really worried that I am pregnant. How likely is this? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
Symptoms:  Lack of period, minor spotting, stomach cramps
