HELP!!!!October 7, 2008 at 1:39 pm #22577missbeth
Well i’m not an expert on this stuff but i do know that you can get pregnant when you are on the pill even if you take it everyday at the same time and never miss one. Your period could be different due to the fact bc changes your body over time. If you think that you truly could be pregnant then take a test to put your mind at ease. You don’t have to mention it to your boyfriend if you feel your body is playing tricks on you. If you need to talk just send a message. Let me know how everything goes for you.October 7, 2008 at 2:01 pm #22578jenni
I am still worried even though i have been to the doctors this morning and she said she thinks its just i need a different pill and have a hormonal imbalance but i felt like saying well why do i have all the symptoms of being pregnant then? apart from a missed period (hardly had one though) and a test(havent taken one)?! confused need help am i just making it up in my head and is what the doctor said or is there a chance i could be that i am pregnant????October 8, 2008 at 3:01 am #22587Anonymous
It is possible that you just need a different pill, because the pill can cause pregnancy like symptoms… everything from missed period to sore breasts.
BUT it’s also possible that you are pregnant. Did she run any tests on you? Just take a home pregnancy test… It’s better to know than to always be worried about it, right?

Alright, I’ll tell ya this hon, if you think it’s in your head- yes get a pregnancy test. If it comes out negative, and you’re still worried, wait until your next period. If you don’t have it by a week after the due date, take another HPT test.
I read on some medical site that the two true signs of pregnancy is a missed period and a positive HPT test. Even though the other symptoms you experience may be common for pregnancies, it may be other problems with the pill you were taking. I would still recommend getting an HPT test, if you’re not ready to tell your boyfriend before the test, then don’t. Go on your own, or take a close girlfriend. Having others with you makes it seem easier, instead of like everyone’s watching you.
DON’T stress. I just went through all kinds of anxiety worrying if I was pregnant. I’m not. Stress can cause your period to miss or be late by a lot of time! Just relax and enjoy your time. Best of luck hon! Keep us posted!
