  • Could I be pregnant?

    Apologies if it's TMI ladies

    Please give me advice .. so I've been on the microgynon combined pill for the past 6 months. I'm in a long distance relationship and me and my boyfriend have always used a condom. He came to visit me this time and we didn't use one throughout his three day stay and we had intercourse 4 times. (This was 4 weeks ago)

    For the past 2 weeks I've had constant nausea, tiredness, cramps, urinating more often than usual also a mix of diarrhoea and constipation and I've been getting on and off headaches. I was about to take a test but then I got my withdrawal bleed that lasted 4 days (my usual periods last about 4 - 6 days so this isn't odd). Is there still a chance that I could be pregnant? I'm still going to take a test later on this week just to be on the safe side. Appreciate your advice. Thanks x

  • IF you are taking your pills every day and are not using a medication (like antibiotic) that can counteract it, it is INCREDIBLY unlikely. What is more likely is that your hormones are just out of whack due to the birth control. If I were you and I continued with symptoms that severe over the course of my next full cycle, I'd be switching pills.

    Also, if I were you, I'd go today, get a cheap test (our Dollar Stores sell them and that's what I have always gotten), and take it to ease your mind. No sense in worrying any longer.

    • Definitely take a pregnancy test: don't bury your head in the sand. If you are pregnant, you will need medical assistance sooner rather than later. Talk to your doctor.
