should i test now?

My last "real" period started around July 1st and was light and lasted a few days. I was about 2 weeks late on my period for August but did get a little spotting around the 12th and it only last 1 day. Thats been 2 weeks ago and still nothing more. For the past week or so I've had sore breasts which is unusal for me and more fatique than usual. I've also been more hungry than usual. Should I test now or is it still too soon since I had that 1 day of a little bit of spotting about 2 weeks ago?

I was on birth control pills for 3 months and had a light period on the last week of pills all 3 months that lasted about 4 days. I did not have any pills for the 2nd half of july and all of august. My last period on July 1st was during my last week of pills. Could my body just be messed up from the birth control because i haven't been taking it? I still don't understand why i would be having the symptoms though if thats the case.

I think I'd definitely test. While it could be your body's reactions to BCPs, it may be that you're pregnant. Test and see. Either way, I'd also suggest a call to your doctor...

I would also suggest you test just to be sure. It could be just your body adjusting to the bcps. Good luck sweetie... hugs!
