So here is the deal.....

I have been on bc for 13 years (on and off) and never gotten pregnant while on it, even though I may have missed one here or there (but always made it up). I just got off my period not even two weeks ago. I forgot to pick up my bc pills from the pharmecy and missed 2 days. Instead of doubling up (I didnt think to do that), I just started taking my pills on Tuesday, which means I went without anything Sunday and Monday. My bf and I have had sex just about every day since. I told him last night about my forgetting to double up and we should use condoms for the next week or so. Because I missed those two pills and never made them up, could I be pregnant? I know it sounds weird since it wasn't even a week ago, but I have been sensitive, had heartburn and I keep having cramps (almost like menstrual cramps but no spotting or anything). Are those possible symptoms or is it just my body reacting to missing two pills??????

Hi there,

It really is hard to know what could be happening.  It is certainly possible that your body is just adjusting to going two days without having the pill, especially if that hasn't ever happened before.  The cramps for sure could be caused by that.  On the other hand, it is also possible you are pregnant.  However, if you were pregnant, it would be likely be too early for you to be experiencing symptoms.  Good luck to you and please keep us posted on how you are doing and if you decide to test.

Well my period is due in about a week and a half. I took a test today (premature, I know) and of course, it was negative. A couple of more odd symptoms have popped up....slight headache and feeling hot (almost feverish) on and off. I guess I will just have to wait until next week.

Okay. So now I am starting to really wonder. I decided to stop taking my pills just in case I am in fact pregnant. I quit taking them half way thru the second week. I am now half way thru the third week and my period has not started. Since I stopped taking them, shouldn't my period have started early? My period would normally come in about 9 days. Does that mean I'm pregnant or my cycle is just messed up? I figure it would have started since I haven't taken pills in a week.....

I wish I had a definite answer for you. I would *think* that you would get your period once you stopped the pills but since you've been on, off, on, and now off again, it could be that your body and cycle are confused right now. I think the best thing to do at this point is to wait until your period would be due and take a test then. Hopefully you'll have a nice solid answer soon!

So...period was due last wednesday and it never came. All tests come back negative. I quit taking my pills mid pack which was now 3 wheels ago. Had ovulation discharge on 11/21. So will my stopping my pills cause me to ovulate late therefore pushing my period back na dmaking it late? Last test I took was Friday....negative. That would have been 8 dpo.

Have you been in to see your doctor yet for a test? If not, I would suggest you give them a call to see if you can get a blood test done. Perhaps that may give you a more clear picture of what could be going on. HUGS and hang in there. Keep us posted!
