  • Are you wondering if your pregers?? Well you can always take a test and see but nothing your saying on here is usual or would make me think something is wrong.... Just remember unless your always on time with your pills then thier is a chance of getting pregnant!

  • Not taking your pills on a regular basis is what is messing with your cycle. There is no point in taking a test after your period because your period is proof that you're not pregnant.

  • If the pain is not normal it might warrant a call to our dr. Look up the symptoms of ectopic pregnancy, but honestly if you were spotting a couple of weeks ago and your cycle was normal last month this is probably an anomaly.

  • That's your problem. You're not taking the pills the way you're supposed to and you're having breakthrough bleeding. BC Pills work by building up the hormone levels in your system. You miss one, and those levels are not high enough to keep you from getting pregnant.

    If you can't take your birth control responsibly and as directed, this is NOT the method for you.
    It amazes me that in this day and age you can't remember to take a pill. Set an alarm on your damn phone already.

  • With BC you should either take them regularly or not at all. You are seriously harming yourself.
    Please go to the Dr. and talk to her about what you have been doing and see what she finds out.
