I am 19, I have been on Loestrin 24 FE for around 10 months now to keep ovarian cysts from reforming. I have not yet experienced the side effects that people complain of such as "depression, mood swings, nausea, headaches, worse cramps, breast tenderness, feeling pregnant... " Once or twice a month I forget to take a pill at night so I just take it the next morning. Also I occasionally skip the placebo pills and go straight to the next pack because my doctor instructed me it was ok to do so. On September 26th I had sex with my new boyfriend and we did not use a condom since I am on the pill. Ten days later on October 6th I started having extreme nausea in the middle of the day and it has been off and on ever since along with some light cramping and a little breast tenderness. Today would make it exactly two weeks since we had intercourse. I have one week till I finish the pack I am on. Is there a chance that this nausea and cramping could be the symptoms of the pill everyone complains about, maybe I'm sick, or do you think there is a good chance I am pregnant? Should I wait and finish the pack to see if I have a period, just stop it now to see if I have a period, or get a pregnancy test now?
