I have a thyroid problem and therefore I haven't gotten my period since August. I've been having some health issues and was on some medicine which stopped my birth control. It's been about 2 or 2 1/2 months of no birth control and my boyfriend and I are still having sex. We were used to not having to use a condom because we were using the pill, but now we're not protected. We used condoms for a couple weeks but after a while we started the pull out method. We both know this isn't very safe but it's been happening.
I'd like to know how I'll know if I get pregnant since I don't get my period. I'd like to know as soon as possible so I could start on the right medical care, so I wouldn't wanna wait until I'm barfing every morning. My thyroid plays with my hormones and sometimes causes me to faint and get pregnancy symptoms anyway. It's pretty expensive to be buying a test every month. I'd like to avoid doing that if at all possible.
Please let me know if there are any ways (without taking a pregnancy test) to know if I get pregnant since I no longer get my period.
Unfortunately, no, you can't say definitely if you are pregnant without taking a pregnancy test. The test is so simple, why are you hesitating? If you take the test and confirm that you aren't pregnant then you could see your doctor and they could help perhaps to regulate your cycles.
Without any contraception and without a regular cycle you could easily fall pregnant. Please consider seeing a doctor and having a pregnancy test done.
You take the test monthly just like any woman does. I assume you want a child? If not, take the test and use condoms. The doctor is essential. You will get plenty of information and better control of your life.
