i originally started the pill to make my periods normal because they were irregular and its been going well and i've been on the pill for about 1 year now, and over the years i've missed one -3 in a pack everyone im hopeless... haha but i've had unprotected sex many times and never got pregnant, but now im worried.
I started my sugar pills 4 days ago and 2 days ago i had unprotected sex and didn't think much of it because im considered obese i figured its harder to get pregnant anyway but my period normally comes by day 3 and it still hasn't come but i took a pregnancy test yesterday night and it was negative. yesterday i had some reddish period looking stuff and i thought i was started cause that how my periods normally starts but then nothing.. and i had little cramps last night but wasn't like period cramps so now im freaking out that it was implantation bleeding..
could i still be pregnant?? im only 19 and im pretty worried..
first take a deep breath and relax, stress can bring about missed ovulation. If you took a pregnacy test they are pretty reliable. so do stress it. and remember you had irregular cycles to begin with that is why you started the pill. however let me put my (mother hat on) my sons girl friend is 21 and she has missed her cycle alot. Please try and use protection. Ok, I'm done with the mother hat... LOL. I havent heard of the overweight women not getting pregnant as thinner women. So chill-lax and have a test again in about 2 days morningtime is better first urine.
Being obese will NOT make it harder for you to get pregnant! Just wanted to get that outta the way first! Your period may not always come on the same day each month. You may even skip a period or not have anything more than a little spotting. If you were to miss two periods then you can worry. Like the other poster mentioned, if your period is due, a pregnancy test is pretty reliable. It is best to use the very first void in the morning because the concentration of HCG, the hormone a pregnancy test looks for, is higher in the first void of the morning. You need to be more careful in remembering your pills though. If you tend to forget them often then you should always use a condom for back up just in case. If you take your pills regularly then the pill will protect you against getting pregnant and if you are sure your partner is STD free, you dont need to use condoms. But with each pill you miss within a month, the greater your chances of getting pregnant are. Set an alarm on your phone, put a note on the fridge or your bathroom mirror-whatever you have to do to remind you to take your pill if you dont want to be pregnant. You are flirting with disaster if you dont want to be a mother right away!Sooner or later your luck will run out. Implantation bleeding is not that common. Your period may yet show up. If it doesnt, give it another week and test again, first morning's void.
