I had sex on the 17th of August. I have never missed a BC pill; which is mononessa(Ive been taking it since July). And we also used a condom. Ever since then my stomach has been acting weird. Within 2-3 days I felt hungry and after barely eating I was full. Sometimes it would give me a little stomach ache. Very seldomly I would feel a tinge of nauseousness, but It was just a slight "ick" feeling. My mouth did not water nor did I get heat flashes. This Monday I found out I had low iron and that both my mother and my grandmother are anemic. So my Mom, who doesn't know I'm on BC, got me generic iron supplements. I over think everything so Im started to panic and think maybe Im pregnant, considering everyone on google related to "birth control and iron supplements" is pregnant. Should I worry or am I just being dumb. Whenever I start to psych myself out about "being pregnant" i literally start to feel sick and anxious. :(
Am I pregnant?

Also, I have noticed in the past day that I feel bloated/weight gain and have had the desire to exercise. Im usually between 117-123lbs but I was 121 earlier and I felt huge. I play sports and I'm physically active about 20 hrs of the week.. Could it just be the BC finally making me have weight gain after about a month?
Lord are you ever over thinking. With just the pill you are protected. You have less then a 1% chance of pregnancy. Iron doesn't effect that. You would not have any symptoms yet if you were. The women who were pregnant are probably taking it because women often need it when they are pregnant.
