  • Go to your doctor hon. He's the only one who can tell you for certain. Especially if you're having sharp abdomanal pain.

  • Probably not. Your period is probably just screwed up from the hormone change. But if you still have a feeling you are, test again.

  • Birth control will complete mess up your cycle sometimes. I've been off the pill for nearly TWO years, and my cycles are 40-60 days long, and completely irregular. Just now, within the last 3 cycles, have they begun to even out and shortened up.

    Give it time, take a test, and maybe call your doctor about the sharp abdominal pains.

  • Sounds like you're trying to get pregnant, so I'd test again or call the doctor about the abdominal pains. Sometimes there can be pains when the placenta is attaching to the uterus. Good luck.

  • I just took a test today cuz I had only spotting for one day. Mine was negative. My pds have been 6-7 days long. I am still on the pill. I am going to wait and see how my next one is then call about changing pills. I dont have abdominal pain. I thought it was weird I had no preg or pd symptoms and I usually really do this time of month. Nothing. I am just as confused as you are. Maybe our pills made us both so messed up...

  • I think it is just your body adjusting from coming off birth control. Of course there's always a possibility of pregnancy when you aren't on any kind of birth control. But I doubt that you are. Just be safe go in and see your doctor! Good luck in all you do!

  • It could just be where you stopped taking your birth control.

  • I would definitley go to the doctor and just get a check up. I had a tubal pregnancy about 5 years ago, and it was very painful and not something that I'd ever wish on anyone! Better to be safe than sorry!
