I started taking it in September. I had dark bleeding for a month and then it stopped and everything was fine. I had my period in November and I've missed the last 2 months. My bf and I use the pull out method and aren't cautious. He went inside me 4 days before my period should come and I missed pills along with being on antibiotics throughout this month. I took a pregnancy test tonight and it is negative. I had a pregnancy 2 years ago and miscarried after 8 weeks. I feel mild cramping, dizziness, fatigue, really bad nausea to the point where i cant eat (experienced this last time), headaches and heart burn. I'm a smoker and every time I smoke I get really sick to my stomach and can't stand it (prob a good thing!). Should I call my OBGYN? I was thinking about taking a test again in the morning however with my last pregnancy it showed up at night but I was also at 3 weeks at that point. I'm just a very busy business women and don't have time to go to the Dr. so I'm trying to prevent having to go if I don't need to.
Why in the world are you trying to practice another form of birth control when you're on the pill. If you have been taking it correctly, its not likely you're pregnant but its advised if you miss two periods to do a pregnancy test. FYI pulling out is NOT a form of birth control. Sperm are deposited in the vagina long before ejaculation. The getting sick every time you light up makes me worry a little. I did the same thing when I had my daughter.
If you missed pills and were on antibiotics and you didnt use back up, you could very well be pregnant. I would retest using the first mornings void (pee). This is when the HCG levels will be highest (HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin which is the hormone that only pregnant women secrete and what a pregnancy test is looking for in a positive result) If you have missed two periods in a row then you do need to be evaluated by your prescribing Dr (OB-GYN would be best to see). You certainly have quite a few symptoms that could point to pregnancy.
