  • some women do have what seems to be their period for their entire pregnancy, so i would take a test just to make sure.

  • Sometimes it takes a couple of months for your body to get adjusted to the pill, and you will be irregular... If you think there's any chance you could be pregnant, of course you should test, but to me it sounds like an adjustment your body is going through.

  • I would read over the side effects of the birth control you have, if that comes up clean. The next step I would take would to be get a pregnancy test. If the pregnancy test comes up negative and you also have none of the side effects I would talk to your doctor. And if you do have any of the side effects I would immediately suggest you consult your doctor. Best of luck!
