Old thread I know but just panicking a bit! I take my pill really well the same time (between 6am-8am) every day with the 7 day breaks. I've never missed a a day either. I had unprotected sex about 6/7 weeks ago when on antibiotics (which I realised afterwards cancels the pill) and after that pill pack I had a period, shorter than usual but not light. I've been having on and off sickness and vomitting for the past two weeks and massive food adversions for the past three weeks (I'm a massive foodie but everything I usually eat or eat religiously I'm put off by now). I'm constantly exhausted (this has been going on for a good 5 weeks now) and doctors can't seem to find why I'm so tired all the time. My nippples have been a bit sore and itchy recently and I think they look different? Or maybe I'm being paranoid. But I am just worried even though I have had a period since the sex. Should I take a test?

Yes. You might just be being paranoid, but it can't hurt to check.

The pill fools your body into thinking you're pregnant so you're likely to experience most hormone-related symptoms of a pregnancy. I experienced 20/39 early pregnancy symptoms while on the combined pill, simple hormone influenced things such as heartburn, lack of tiredness, oversensitivity.. Even though I am not pregnant, so there's no way to tell if you're pregnant on the pill by symptoms alone. The best way to know if you are pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test. Over-the-counter antibiotics such as ibuprofen and paracetamol or any other pain relief tablets should not have any influence on the effect of the pill

I am worried too, I’ll 19 and I’ve been taking my pill for 4 years now like clockwork only missing about 10 pills in total. Recently my stomach feels bigger like rounder but I don’t know if it’s just me putting on weight. I’ve felt sick most of the time these past couple of days and some stomach ache to go with it (and bloating) but I haven’t actually been sick. Since being on the pill I haven’t had a full blown period , the last time I bled lightly was 6 months ago. There is a flu going around in my area. So am I being paranoid about nothing or should I be worried?

Just take a test. It is still possible to get pregnant on the pill even with perfect use. More likely if you miss some pills.

Better take a test now to find out whether you are or not, than wait until you're pregnant for sure

It's a possibility, so if you're concerned you should take a test.

I'm 18 and took the pill for over a year now and I've missed some pills and have spotted and then had unprotected sex with with boyfriend now my boobs have grown and are very tender and sore and my stomach gets bigger and rounder when I eat but every time I try to stop taking the pill I start spotting could that mean I'm pregnant I dunno what to do

The symptoms I have are:
• Breasts are tender, sore and bigger
• Bloating
• Frequent going to toilet
• Feeling sick
• Fainting 3 times in a row
• More discharge then usual and colour more white and creamy
• fatigue

Can anyone tell me why I would have these symptoms

Why wouldn't you take a pregnancy test? If you've missed some pills and then had sex, it's a possibility.

Can someone help me out with a situation?

So last Sunday me and my ex had sex (just a one off)
Anyway two weeks before that we had broke up and it had caused to start taking me pill at irregular times leading times( so I was taking the pill at different times up until today) We had unprotected sex I didn’t think I’d get pregnant because I was on the pill so I didn’t get the morning after pill. It been 5 days since we had sex and I’ve just realised that maybe I could be pregnant. However, I don’t take my pill breaks so I have no way of telling whether I’m pregnant through my periods. Does anyone have any ideas of what I should do?
