if your period is not due for another week. it would be no wonder you would be getting negative pregnancy tests now even if you were pregnant. chances are its just related to the pill. wait till your periods due or late

Q: Will starting the birth control pill make my breasts bigger? If so will they go back to regular size after a few months or will they be that size until I go off the pill?
A: In my case, they did get bigger, but not immense. Just a cup size or so. They stayed that way until I was off the pill. It probably differs for different women and maybe also on different pills.
Q: ive been on the pill for almost 2 years now (yasmin) and i take it pretty much the same time every day sometimes only a few hours late but rarely miss any. I had unprotected sex with my bf during the last active pill on the 3rd row and he did come in me..i then got confused whether to have my period or not so took in active one white tablet but then the next day started a new pack and took 2 active pills my period did come for 2 days but then stopped coz i was taking the active pills. that was about a 2 weeks, and ive been having a really bloated lower abdomen as if there is something in it and even if i havent eaten alot its still more swollen and bloated than normal, not sure if its indigestion or just from skipping my period. My breasts are also quite tender and sore around the outside and i have been feeling a bit of fatigue lately but im not sure if thats just coz ive had a bit of the flu, ive also been having head aches and alot of burping and gas etc my period is due in a bout a week so im not sure if its all just a combination of skipping my period and it being due soon i was just after the chances of being pregnant
A: If you have unprotected sex on the pill and your bf ejaculates inside you, don't stop taking your pills the way you should...take them exactly how you are supposed to, not taking them correctly is how you get pregnant.
Q: I'm on birth control and I had sex the day before my period was supposed to start, so I continued to take my pills through the course of my period to prevent pregnancy. But now my period will not stop. It's been over ten days, and if anything my period is just getting heavier. My period usually lasts about five or six days, never more than seven. And I've been on the same birth control pill for about eight years. Should I continue taking my pill every night or stop? I just want my period to end!
A: Depending on what pill you're on, it probably didn't work for you to skip your period. If you're on a tricyclic pill, it is rare that it works to skip a period because the pills have to be taken out of order, you can't just start the next pack. If you're on a monophasic pill then it has a better chance of working but that's still no guarantee because there are some women who aren't able to skip regardless of what pill they are on. You should definitely keep taking your pill because if you interrupt your hormone dose, it will take even longer to get back on track. You need to keep taking it and wait for it to get back to normal. It could take a few more weeks for your hormones to get back to a normal level.
Q: Hi i had sex the day i was due to take my 1st pill of the month on a weds, forgot to take it, took 2 on the thursday, forgot to take it fri, so took 2 sat, got to the end of the box, but had a weekend away so carried on with next box, for about 3 weeks, i have had severe stomach craps and change in my toilet habits, not full stools, i have metalic taste in mouth, on and off nausea through the day, lethargicness, and insomnia, i dont have swollen or tender breasts though, with these symptons i took a test whilst still takin the pill, it came back negative so i stopped taking the pill to see what would happen, i started to bleed yesterday with horrific cramps in back and stomach, along with all above symptoms, is this a fake period and i am likely to be pregnant or am i ok as i have bled
A: well you might be pregnant because sometimes you bleed the last time because the body will choose if you are pragnant or not ... because i had the same thing thats why but i was not on pill and i was not having a protected sex its because we where planning for a child ... but i am not sure about the thing that you miss the pill and you take 2 ... my friend she do the same like you but till far she never got pragnant again because she already had a child
Q: im only 20 yrs old and both of my breasts have been very tender to the touch for the past 5 days now, but have gotten LESS tender as the days pass by, but still are just as swollen, about a half cup size bigger. iv also been very EXAUSTED lately, taking a 2-4 hr nap almost daily, iv been on the same birth control for the past 5 years now (yasmin), and i have never experianced these symtoms ever before, im not due for my period for another 9 days though, anyone have any advice????? Thanx
A: ummm..call your dr. If nothing else in your life has changed (ex. new job, recent breakup or something) then yes, these are unusual symptoms for an otherwise healthy 20yr old. Sore breasts/ tired could be PMS. If you've been on birthcontrol for 5 yrs (and taking it correctly) it's unlikely, but not impossible, that you got pregnant. Also, I think it would be quite early for symptoms like those for pregnancy (breasts don't usually get bigger for a while). Anyway, call your MD, they'll have you come in for an exam and some tests I'm sure.
Q: Okay, I am really good about taking my pills and I have my period at the same time every month. In the past few days my breasts have become tender and kind of hurt. I am supposed to start my period again not this coming saturday but the next. Can I still be Pregnant?
A: I am currently on the pill due to fibriods. I had to try many different pills to get the right fit. 2 of the pills gave me no period at all. The one that I am on now I get my period the wrong week every month. The doctor said as long as I get a period, do not worry about when I am getting it. I have heard of people who get pregnant on the pill, but it is a rare few. I wouldn't be very concerned at this point. Wait and see. If you are very nervous, try taking a home pregnancy test to see those results.
Q: I have been on birth control for about 8 months now, so I'd say my periods have been regular. I came home from college the weekend of September 11 and forgot to take my birth control home. I miss three days, and I got my period on Monday the 14th. I didn't continue my pills because I wasn't sure what to do, or if I should continue. I've had both protected and unprotected sex since then, but my boyfriend did not ejaculate inside of me. I'm due for my period now right, since it's been almost a month? My breasts are tender and I feel kind of crampy. But I know these are both signs of pregnancy. I don't plan on having sex anytime soon until I figure this out. I will take a pregnancy test. But could my breasts be tender because I'm supposed to be getting my period? I know it's going to be irregular now. If I find out I'm not preg, should I go back on birth control starting sunday?
A: Its hard to say what's going on. You will absolutely need to take a pregnancy test. Use a sensitive test and a first morning urine. Repeat in several days to a week if you are not sure. What to do depends on what type of pill you are on, and when in your cycle you missed them. Here is a great chart from Planned Parenthood that explains it all clearly. http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-topics/birth-control/if-forget-take-pill-19269.htm Remember to always, always, always have back up birth control methods with you so that you are not in the position to have unprotected sex. If you miss pills and have unprotected sex...you may become pregnant. If you are on bcp's, then clearly your intention is NOT to have a baby right now. You could have also taken Plan B or some other type of emergency contraception. This is available over the counter at drugstores. Good luck, take a test if you don't get your period soon, repeat it in a few days to a week if you still don't get it, and print out that chart from Planned Parenthood so that you will always have it.
A: Okay thank you. But back to the question about tender breasts and cramps.. since this is about the time I should be getting my period, this is normal, I believe. But there's a chance I may miss my period even if I'm not pregnant. So it's still normal right?
Q: Hey basically i went to get the pill and my doctor told me to just start it straight away even though it was a couple of days after my period and that it was going to be effective after the first week. On the second week my boyfriend and i had sex but we used a condom and i dont think he ejaculated. I also forgot to take the pill by 2 hours. Ive finished the first pack and am in that phase when i stop taking it for 7 days when my period should happen. But basically i have not had it and i was wondering if this was because i started the pill later than i should have and will it regulate soon?!
A: You need to use condoms for the first month when starting birth control because it takes about that long for it to properly start working. The Pill I used to be on, you took it for 3 weeks straight then take a weeks break and in that week you get a withdrawal bleed (period). Most pills work this way. However, for them to start working properly you need to take the pill on the first day of you period when you start it, and then take the pack, and have your pill free week and then you receive your 'period' in that week. I have no idea why your doctor told you you can start taking it right away, this just messes up your cycles. The pill can do that anyway because of the hormones but taking it as the doc directed can just mess them up more. Just continue taking it like you have been though, since you've started now and I'm sure your 'period' will show at some point.
A: What pill are you on? To my knowledge there isn't a pill that you stop taking for 7 days while you are on your period. All pills work differently with each person. When I first took the pill I didn't have a period at all the first month and my dr told me it was because it was the first time taking it and that the following month. You're not supposed to have sex (unprotected) during the first month of any new birth control pills or shots.It doesn't matter if you were a few hrs late as long as you took the pill the day you were supposed to. It also says take the pill as soon as you remember unless it is the next day.
Q: Hi everyone. I'm new here, but hope you can give me some opinions or put my mind at ease. Sorry if this seems long. I've been on birth control pills (three different kinds) for three years now. I am not very good at taking them. This month I missed two pill consecutivly the end of the first week or the start of the second week of the pack. I took two pills for the next two days. I have had to double up on pills on three different das since then. I had unprotected sex (monogomously) on a few occasions since then. I am due to start my period on sunday night(when it usually comes). My breasts have been super sore for almost a week and a half now (ouch!), and I've been more moody than usually PMS times, and a little sick at times. Is this all in my head, or am I possibly pregnant? Waiting is killing me!
A: Beth I myself missed one pill and yes I got pregers. My period didn't come on day 28 so on day 29 I took a test and it was very light so I went to the doctor on day 30 and I was Pregnant. She is 5 now. If your breasts are sore and they are not normaly or as much. If the nipple is red and your breasts are swollen take the test. If you have any other questions you can feel free to email me @ kimberley_822002***@****
A: Thank you ladies so much. It's day 28 and i haven't started yet, but it usually doesn't come until nighttime (8pm or so). If it never shows, I guess I'll test in the am. I'm scared. I'll let you know how it goes. Kimberly- thank you so much for you kindness. I may take you up on your offer.
Q: I am 34yrs old and have been taking the pill for 5 yrs now. Last month I started taking anti-biotics for a sinus infection during the week of my period and into the first week back on the pill. I never missed a pill but much to my surprise I've discovered that I'm pregnant. Has this happened to anyone else out there? And will taking the pill during the first month of my pregnancy have a negative effect on my child?
A: Should be fine. When did you stop taking the pill? Many types of antiboitics will have a negative affect on birth control. I'm surprised your doctor didn't warn you to use extra protection while on the medicine. Anyways...beleive it or not...allot of women get pregnant on the pill, so it's not an uncommon thing. Make sure you follow up with doctors appointments.
A: I took the pill the whole month. I had no idea that I was pregnant. Funny really because my daughter said to me about three weeks in "Mommy your boobies are getting bigger, that one is actually bigger than that one." lol, my chest was already getting tingly and sensitive and I geuss larger but I just never put it together until I was late getting my period.
