Could I be pregnant??

Hi,

Thanks in advance for reading

Okay, so in November, I missed two pills, and had sex twice before I realised they were missed. I took the pills once I realised, but I know that missing two pills means there's a risk of pregnancy.

I was a bit worried about it, but then my withdrawal bleed came as normal, so I figured I wasn't pregnant and I just forgot about it.

However, I just had my second withdrawal bleed since the missed pills, and it was much lighter than normal....

I've also been hearing stories about people who have withdrawal bleeds for months and don't realise that they're pregnant, so now I'm worried again.

The thing is, aside from this light bleed, I have no symptoms at all - no change in tastebuds, no bloating, no physical changes - and I keep thinking that SURELY if I were pregnant then I would have noticed by now??

I know the sensible thing to do would be to just take a pregnancy test to be sure, but I feel like that would just be giving in to my paranoia, and I don't want to waste money on something I'm not sure I even need.

So can anyone give me any advice - could I be pregnant?? Or should I just stop worrying and get on with life?

Thanks in advance for the replies

usually it's when you miss a period and have morning sickness that means that a pregnancy is most likely

If you're worried about being pregnant then a pregnancy test would be a logical and reasonable thing to buy. Nobody here can tell you whether you're pregnant or not.All we can tell you is what you already know- yes, there is a real risk that you're pregnant. Find out one way or the other with a test.

It's not money wasted if you're worried you might be pregnant. If you're unsure then take a test. It's the only way to truly put your mind at rest.

It's very unlikely that you're pregnant. Just get a test, you can get them for cheap.

I don't get this line of thought or the thought behind any "am I pregnant?" thread.

Surely it makes much more sense to go and take a pregnancy test than ask strangers on the internet and wait for their opinions (which will had no impact on if you are or aren't pregnant)?

I don't see it as giving into your paranoia by taking a test. Taking the test will give you an answer either way which is a lot more useful than strangers on the internet most with zero medical experience making guesses. If anything not taking the test will make you more paranoid as whatever we say there is still a chance.

It sounds like you are fine but there is only one way to know for sure - take a test

I don't think you should be seeking advice from strangers on a predominantly student forum. Personally, talk things through with your family if you can, and think things thoroughly through because this is such an important matter. I would advise against abortion, due to the emotional impact, but I can't make that choice for you.

This thread is 4 years old. If they were pregnant, and had the child, their kid is probably in reception now.
