Hey everybody, I have some concerns about pregnancy and my birth control. I am on my fourth week of Alyacen 1/35. Around the beginning of the pack I started having stomach pain. As weeks have gone by my stomach pain has stayed the same but as of really recently I have been having mild diarrhea, but it is way after I take my pill. I have also been participating on the Whole 30 challenge which I am about to finish, and I believe I have not been getting enough fiber and that why I am having these issues. But I have bouts of anxiety and I cant help but think I am pregnant. My boyfriend never ejaculates in me, so I don't really think I am pregnant. I also have not missed my period which should start on a week. So what do you guys think? IBS, Fiber/diet problem/ or pregnancy/ birth control?
You should be fine as far as protection. Mild diarrhea won't interfere with it.
I am more concerned about where the loose bowel movements and pain came from. it started towards the beginning of this pill pack as hasn't really gone away.
It is probably the huge change in your diet that is causing the diarrhea and stomach pain. Big changes in the body like this can also effect your period. If your body is stressed, it tells itself that pregnancy is not sustainable at this time so you may not ovulate and may not have a period. Whole 30 is not a normal eating pattern and it will affect your body. If you are eating a lot more vegetables, it can lead to increased gas and bloating then on to diarrhea. Once you begin eating a normal well balanced diet, this stuff will stop.
you guys have both been amazingly helpful. I just hope my period does come for the relief of stress.
