  • well,birth control basically tricks your body into thinking its pregnant so that might be the reason for the similarity... but I wouldn't keep taking something that is giving you such a strong reaction... I'd try some other type of birth control

  • yes..this has been happening to me ever since may..i've been having a period every 14 days..well my period will last 7 or 8 then come back like 6 days later. i have 14 full cycle days. its been crazy. I havent used an IUD though. My dr gave me provera to induce my period and it hasnt gotten regular since...this month it has gone a little longer..i hope i don't get it.

  • I know someone who got pregnant with one she will be having a second about a week before her first turns one! Ask for a pregnancy test!
