Well....I went on the bc pill on Feb.17, the day after af started. I started having swelling in my feet-I have mild high blood pressure that is controlled by medication-and took my last bc pill on March 1.Since then, I had unprotected sex with my hubby of nearly 7 months quite a few times. AF has been irregular at times, but I have gotten a period every month for a while now. My cycle usually runs 30 days, but sometimes can be as short as 25 days or 37 days. Well, af was due on the 18th. It's almost easter and nothing happened-except for nausea, sore bbs, stomach swelling, having a strong aversion to some of my fave foods-including chocolate, craving milk-and coconut milk at that(I hardly drink milk), feeling really tired most days, etc. After poas a few times, I went to the doctor and had a blood test done yesterday. Results will be back by April 1. I do have 2 questions:

1) Can you miss af after taking the bc pill for 13 days-even after having unprotected intercourse?

2) If I am not pregnant, why am I not having af?

Btw, my hubby and I do want this baby, even if it turns out to be unplanned.

It is so hard telling what could be happening. I'm glad you've been in to see your doctor already though. Sounds like you'll be receiving the results about the bloodwork today. Since you've had two negative home pregnancy tests, my guess is that you aren't pregnant but that your body is off schedule due to the starting and stopping of birth control pills.  The symptoms you've been experiencing could be side effects of your changing hormones.  However, it is still possible you are pregnant since you did have unprotected sex.  I wish I had the perfect answer for you!  Keeping you in my thoughts and please come back and let us know what you find out.  HUGS!
