I am 28 years old and I have got my period on 1st of August after a week late and lasted till 7th of August and I got my period again on 15th of August, keeping in mind that I took a contraceptive pill last week on 8th August and I have been working out too and I am really stressed. Can I be pregnant or it’s something normal?, is it okay?
