Cigs taste bad ??

Hey ladies, I am currently on the pill and I smoke like 3 cigs a day I was smoking a pack a day until about a month or so ago and I've noticed in the last week that they taste really horrible. I was just wondering if this happened to any of you and if so did it result in a positive pregnancy test. I'm not due to start my period til tuesday or wednesday but I have a few other symptoms. Not sure if it's just the pill or if the pill got defaulted a few weeks ago when I had the flu.

  • Everything seems to mean you are pregnant.

  • I fail to see how this is a bad thing. Cigs are bad for you anyway. But the pill is not useless due to the flu. now if you took an antibiotic then yes it would invalidate the pill. It's just one of those wait and see things. Be a good time to just quit completely. Anyway good luck. Hope things go the way you want them to.

  • The flu when there is vomiting and diarea CAN cause the pill to be useless. My doctor told me this when I got on it.

  • I smoked before I got pregnant and was completely disgusted with them during my pregnancy. I noticed it before I even knew I was pregnant. It started out just not craving them then slowly they made me sick. Then I found out I was pregnant and knew I couldn't smoke anyway but the sight, smell, thought of them made me gag. I've never heard about the flu making the pill less effective so I can't say anything about that, but the cigarette thing could definitely be a symptom.
