Is this something that any of you have experienced??

Hi, I recently went off bc pills in July right before my wedding. I had a normal period in Aug and then I got my "period" about 3 days early in Sept (on the 6th) however it was only 2 days long, not 6 like normal. Still had normal bleeding though. I've taken several preg tests and they all say neg except over the past 3 days I have not been feeling well. I suffer from migraines and had not had one in a while, but now I'm getting them everyday. Even worse is that around the same time everyday (about 3pm or so) I start getting a stomach ache (right above my belly button area) and nausea. NOt enough nausea to vomit, just uncomfortable. Eating does not help. Sometimes it makes it worse. I'm not sure if discomfort in that particular area is a normal sign of pregnancy or if any of you preg. women have ever had anything like that? I'm contemplating going for a blood test just to be sure tomorrow. Just curious what people thought. :)

  • You might be having a hormonal imbalance from not using BC. Doesnt sound like your prego though, but who knows everyone is different. Definately get a blood test done. Good luck

  • you know, I didn't even think about that! I've been reading that it takes a while sometimes for a woman's body to readjust after going off the pill....that totally makes sense b/c I've been extra emotional too (I cry at every sad/sweet commercial lately! lol) Thank you very much for the suggestion--I think you might be right! :)
