I have NO idea what's going!

So, let me start off by saying I'm on birthcontrol--Yaz. I took my last pink pill on July 1st, (28 day cycle---4 placebos). I usually get my period by about the 3rd placebo pill. Starting about the 3rd day until the 5th day I had very light brownish discharge, nothing I'm used to. Well the 5th day after my last pink pill I had red blood (which I though was my period and could breathe a sigh of relief) but it was just enough to get my underwear---then NOTHING.
So now I'm sitting here, just over 2wks later, and still nothing. I have taken 3 HPT's now, and all are negative. The only symptoms I have are feeling nauceous from time to time and headaches.
I haven't started taking my birthcontrol again, just in case for whatever reason I am pregnant.
What in the world is going on with me? Anybody experience this..and were you pregnant or not?
...I think I definately am going to get in touch with my Dr.

  • I don't take birth control so I can't help you, I just wanted to say I'm having a similar experience, but I think it's because I'm breastfeeding. Are you breastfeeding? My periods were completely normal for the first 6 months or so (I wasn't one of the lucky ones that doesn't get a period while breastfeeding, lol) and for the past 3 or 4 months my periods have been late, irregular, light, and I freak out every time and take a HPT. I CANNOT get pregnant again due to my complications with birth and my health thereafter. (And even if I did like BC I couldn't take it due to high blood pressure that I got from preeclampsia with my still hasn't gone away and I'm 10 months PP) DH's insurance doesn't cover a vascectomy and we don't have the money ATM to pay out of pocket so we just use condoms. I'd definitely get in touch with your doctor and explain.

  • yeah.. i had almost the exact same experience about 2 years ago... well.. I was pregnant.
    The HPT didn't show up postive until my next scheduled period tho.. and even then it was a very faint positive on there. So. give it a week or two.. take another test.. go to the doc.. but be prepared to be pregnant and be prepared to not be (as it may just be a change in your cycle)

  • OP here: chairhead, no, I'm not breastfeeding.

  • Hmmm, then I'd get in touch with your doctor. Just explain the symptoms and see what he/she says. I'm sure you could get a blood test done and see what your HGC levels are.
