Hello! Here is my situation:

I was on birth control for for 3 years. I was on a very low hormone pill for about about a year because all the other ones made me sick. I got my regular period on the pill April 27th and it lasted until May 1st which is usual. But last month I forgot to take two pills (which I never do) on May 7th and 8th. On the 9th I had really heavy bleeding (which I'm assuming is breakthrough bleeding). I called my doctor's office and the nurse said to stop the pill, throw the pack away, and begin on the Sunday after my next period. So I did that and my period continued until the 18th (really long for me). I have no idea when I'm supposed to get my next period but if I use a 28 day cycle which is what I'm used to then I'm 5 days late for my period. My husband and I usually have had sex every day (except when I was bleeding). For the past two weeks I also have symptoms I've never had before. My boobs are very very sore (especially around nipple), my areolas are darker and bumpier, I have been very tired but have a hard time falling asleep, but then when I do I sleep for like 12 hours. I am also very moody (my husband keeps reminding me of that). I have terrible heartburn after every meal no matter what I eat. I have I also have frequent headaches, waves of dizziness and nauseous, and all of this is very irregular for me even if it is PMS. I took an hpt on the 7th, 8th, and 10th and they all said negative. My husband and I would love for me to be pregnant, but I don't know if it's something due to coming off the pill, or false negatives, or what. I am not under any stress or anything else. I've also had to abruptly stop the pill once before because of an interaction I had with another medication and nothing like this happened, I remained regular. 

Any suggestions? Thanks!


I would call my doctor and make an appointment to get a confirmed diagnosis or have them take a blood sample and conduct a pregnancy test. Sometimes the levels of hormones in urine are low enough to be undetectable, but with blood the results should be very conclusive.
