Hey my names Aly and i think i may be pregnant. My ex-boyfriend and I have had a rocky road but now have decided to just be friends, friends with benefits. Up until a week and a half ago the benefits did not include sex but now they do. I am on birth control but i am not the most consistant user and in november actually skipped a whole month. We had sex unprotected the first time but after that we have used a condom. I wasn't too worried until i began getting these wierd cramps when my period is still a week away. Ive also been getting a little dizzy and tired alot. Usually im in perfect health but the last week ive just had this feeling that something is wrong. I still have a week before i can really take a pregnancy test, so any good advice to get me through this week would be much appricated!
Sometimes you could just have painful ovulation, but if you are past that, here are some other early pg symptoms that may help you figure out if you are or are not, or at least ease your mind a bit until you know for sure. Very sensitive to smells. Moody and not just cranky but very weepy, sleepy much earlier than normal, but one of the most common symptoms very, very early on are very very sore breasts! You also have to urinate alot! Up a lot more than normal at night. You may also want to not take your pill until you know for sure, depending on what you want to do if you are pg. Use condoms until you know for sure. Then I would go and see your Dr. and get started on your pills again, or actually get the new and improved versions that they have out there now that you can have that last a month or so. I apologize, it has been a long time since I have been on birth control, but all the ads on tv are overwhelming. I have a hard time remembering if I took my vitamin or not! Most of all try to stay busy and not stress out on this. Stress can make your cycles be very erradic. You should be able to go and get the EPT that allows you to test 5 days early. If you need to talk, please feel free.
God bless and you are in my prayers.
I would try and be consistent with my pills but some nights I would take them at 8pm and other nights i would take them at 1am. Also i have missed some pills too. But im getting some wierd neck pains for no reason and pratically falling asleep in most of my classes. Im probably thinking about this too much but still im a little worried. Im going to go and take a test on friday or saturday and see if im really pregnant or just paranoid
