could it be??

last month I was late remembering to re-start my birth control. I have the ring, I took it out on a friday, and didn't put it back in until the Sunday after I was supposed to. For the last week or so I have been gassy and not feeling well. I get extremely hungry to the point where I have to sit until I eat something my belly hurts so much (which I remember from being about 4 ms preg.) and every time I eat I feel like throwing up. I have no other symptoms, but I think they might be supressed by the birth control. Could I be preg? Who wants to go buy me a test? LOL

  • I will buy you one...lol. Don't read too much into it until you are late. Wait until it doesn't come tomorrow or the next day. Keep me updated.

  • the birth control isn't going to suppress the symptoms. if anything it would make them worse adding hormones to you. But of course you could be.. take the ring out and see if you have your period ( isn't that how it works?? not real sure haven't started mine yet LOL) but either way if you think your pregnant you should be using it so definitely take a test.

  • birth control doesn't effect the test at all.

  • I dont know how long until you can take a test. I dont think bc affects it though. I would call the doc monday and ask if you have any questions though.

  • You don't need to wait to take the test. Mine was positive at 12 days.

  • WHOA!!! stop with the birth control! if you think you might be pregnant stop taking the birth control and wait until you can get a clear test! if your pregnant and taking birth control it can harm the baby!!

    BC shouldnt make you feel sick or anything, but then again there are sideaffects...if this your first time on the ring?
