Okay I've recently lost a baby and went on birthcontrol (the pill). I had sex with my husband on the second or Thir day of being on the pill. I've now finish my first pack and I'm having some symptoms of when I first got pregnant. No vomiting as yet or anything just small things have me honking I'm pregnant again. I fell emotional, eating a lot mild cramps. But I've just taken my last pill yesterday so I should be expecting a period soon. Yesterday an today I saw small brown discharge in my underwear. I don't know if its spotting or implantation bleeding or it's normal cause I Gould be getting a period soon. I'm not able to take a preganancy test as yet because hormones from my last pregnancy are still in my body and it will show positive regardless. Help me please, I should hope it's not all in my head, I would like I be pregnant I guess if I don't bleed during this 7 days I will call my doctor but any advice?
Well I cannot say either way for sure but mild cramping, eating a lot, being over emotional and light brown discharge are all precursors to starting your period. I would say more than likely you are not pregnant. I am sorry for the loss of your baby. Maybe give yourself a little time and try again. God Bless.
I agree with Lucy - the symptoms you described are very common before a period starts. The brownish discharge is just old blood that had dried up some. It changes to that color when that happens. Try not to worry, stress can throw your sysyem off too. As my grandmother used to say, "Don't panic till you have to."
Hello Samantha and welcome to DC. Firstly, I am sorry for your loss. That is an emotional turmoil for any woman. Secondly, just going by what you say here... even though you started taking bc... it does sound like you would welcome being pregnant. But, no matter... If you don't get your period before you start your next pack, I would contact your doctor's office because they will likely want to do a pregnancy test. I would do that over a home pregnancy test.
Whatever it is you both want... I encourage you to take charge here and make those decisions with the best interest for yourself and your husband in mind. Do you want to be pregnant and would you welcome that so soon?
If it turns out you are not pregnant... make a decision and stick to it otherwise you are going to put your body (and your mind) into an emotional roller coaster. Not so healthy way to live... and not very freeing for your spirit.
I hope there isn't a guilt factor here but if so, just know you can talk here and be supported. I am sensing some anxiety.
Be safe, be well and take good care of YOU because you ARE worth it!!!
