Please bare with me here as I am new. My husband and I just got married this past December. My last period ended on December on December 22. I am keeping track of everything with an app for my smartphone. We had sex on December 22, december 25, and december 30, apparently my most fertile time. I am taking the generic version of orth tri-low and am only on my second month of this new pill ( i was on ortho tri low for the past three years). On December 30, after we had sex, I forgot to take my pill. I took one the next morning when I woke up and one the that night. Since last Thursday, I have been feeling a bit more tired and I have had some low-key headaches off and on. I am also having some cramping in my lower abdomin and some loose "movements". I am eating the same though I am getting heartburn pretty frequently. I am beginning to wonder if I might be pregnant. Are these common symptoms? If I am pregnant, it wasn't planned but we will be happy. Could missing the pill like that on my most fertile day have been bad? Please help!
