I have been on the pill for 5 years. My periods have been very regular. I went off 4 months ago and since then they are still regular-maybe off by one day. We just started trying for a baby and now my period is 4 days late but hpt's are telling me negative. I find this weird because I am always so regular?

I took 4 Hpt and they were all positive. Then a couple days later AF shows up!! Went to the doctor for my blood work and it came back negative, my blood count was 5, he said Im not pg. Any idea why this would happen?

Hi ya'll. I just started having s_xual relationships and its about 5 days before my expected period. My b___sts kinda hurt, mostly underneath them, but that could also be cause my bf is grabby with them. I am dizzy when I stand up, but that could be because I am on a diet. I have also felt more homonal, like when I was on birthcontrol. (We did not have inprotected s_x, the pill just gave me horrible after effects and they took me off of it) If you could tell me where exactly the b___st is supposed to ache? Like the entire b___st? The undersides? The tips? My b___sts usually don't ache unless I wear the wrong bra, or very rare occurances, but that was before my bf. Any help you could give would be great. Thanks.

If its a light period...pregnancy test shud work...Symptoms of periods are sometimes confused with shud wait at least two that HCG level wud show on test.Sometimes just worrying can cause irregular periods.

No it is not possible to have a period while pregnant...I don't know why people keep saying it is. If you expierience bleeding it is called spotting. Spotting happens sometimes during implantation. Spotting is very light and might last between 2 to 3 days. SPOTTING IS NOT YOUR PERIOD!

Tanya is wrong, you can have your period and still be preg. I had a very heavy period but it was shorter than usuall and only lasted 3 days. I missed the next month and went to the OB right away and I was 10 weeks. And I delivered right on time!

Carly, your symptoms could be from the pill. Every woman has a different reaction to the hormones from the pill. You should go to your dr and ask if any changes to your body as you described could be from the pill. I know when I started taking the pill, I felt horrible for a few months. However, I have also been pregnant, and your symptoms sound similar. I had read somewhere that the pill is supposed to trick your body into thinking it is already pregnant. This is due to the extra estrogen found in the pill. Good luck with everything!

thanks for the ansa...i saw my doctor yesterday and wen i told him about the pains he said they were period pains but when i said to him about my `period` he said stright away do a hpt..i suppose the bet thing i can do is wait till next week and do another test?


Shawna - October 4

Your dr is probably right. Although an entire month will feel like torture when you are waiting to find out something so special, I hope you hear the news you are waiting for! I will hopefully find out on Oct 12 if I am expecting. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

are able to get pregant by pre-c_m?


Terri - October 20

I am on a very low dose birth control pill which my doctor said I HAVE to take at the exact same time daily because a few hours late of taking them can make me prone to pregnancy. I took a trip to see my boyfriend and there is a 2 hour time difference which I didn't consider while taking my pills. Two weeks after the fact it dawned on me and I took a pregnancy test ( which I just found out doesn't register until 150hcg) but it came up very very faint +. Now 2 days later I started my period on time due to pills but it is lighter and spotty at times (very unusual for me the heavy bleeder). Can I be pregnant still?

Jenn, my doctor told me a lot of pregnancies occur because of pre-c_m.
