Post birth contraceptive


Q: My doc put me on estelle ed 35 after having my first period after childbirth. I followed the 7 day rule and had sex after 9 days of taking the hormone pills. After reading the estelle info sheet I saw it said to take estelle for 14 days before sex unless using other birth control. I supsequently took emergency contraceptive pill. A few days later and for the rest of this cycle I have had cervical mucus streaked with bright red blood. Is this breakthrough bleeding or something else I started taking the non active tablets tonight. Could I be pregnant?

Symptoms:  Cervical discharge with blood
