What is wrong with my body?

Ok ladies, I have been on the same birth control for over a year, all of a sudden about a month and a half ago I have started having pregnancy symptoms...all of them, nausea, breast hurting, you name it I've got it...I cried at a hallmark commercial. I took a pregnancy test and it came back neg. and I started my period. Is it possible to have symptoms of preg. after being on birth control for so long or should I call my dr. and ask for a blood test? I don't know what is going on any helpful input would be great.

  • Even though you have been on these pills so long it is still possible for them to give you side effects regardless of when they occur. If the test came back negative and you are getting regular periods you aren't pregnant. I think if you happen to miss your period then you might want to get a blood test. Otherwise, no.

  • I got pregnant on the Nuva Ring and I was on it for 2 and 1/2 years. I used it accordingly. But I didn't find out I was pregnant until i was 5 months. Usually, the hormons in the birth control make your symptoms less. I had no symptoms of being pregnant until i took out my ring for a week. But since you had your period I wouldn't be concerned since if you have your period you deff. aren't pregnant.
