Hi Britt,

Yes you could be pregnant.  

Missing one pill and not taking the others on time isn't going to make the birth control as effective as it can be.  You're somewhat protected, just not the same as if you took it as directed.

The headaches and stomach pains are not specific to pregnancy.

The bleeding is a concern.  It almost sounds as if it might be implantation bleeding, it can last a week or more.

Take a home pregnancy test.  Use your first morning urine, it is more concentrated so more likely to give an earlier positive.  Follow all the directions carefully, especially times.  If it comes up negative, 7-10 days after your due date take another.  By then, if you are pregnant, the hCG levels made by the fetus, and which the test looks for, will be high enough for an accurate result.

You didn't say when your period was due.  It it was more than 10 days ago, testing once should let you know.

I can understand you being scared but you are having sex.  It is always a risk.  Even the pill isn't 100% effective.

Good luck, keep us posted.
