I am on birth control (microgestin 1/20) but haven't gotten my period.
- May 22 should have started my inactive birth control pills, since I was going on vacation I started my next pack to skip my period.
- May 28 had spotting that lasted for 4 days
- Since the beginning of June I have had weird stomach pains. Almost like I'm hungry but don't want to eat, eating makes it feel better
- June 13th I started my inactive pills on the BC, guessing I should have started my period? This week I also started having nauseous spells
- June 16th - took a pregnancy test and there was a very very faint 2nd line, went to the store and bought another test (different brand)it was negative. Tested again first thing in the morning and still was negative
- June 17th-current - still haven't gotten my period, still have nauseousness, and i have had lots of clear discharge, had a negative pregnancy test this am, sore boobs (could be imagination from over thinking)
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out as suggested by your symptoms. Urine pregnancy test kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. They can also show false negative results. It should always be done on early morning first urine sample as the concentration of pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be highest in this sample. Blood/serum HCG level estimation is accurate If you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet. Drink plenty of water.
Another possibility could be effects of continuous use of the pills manifested with the symptoms that you have and ovarian suppression leading to absent periods. Wait and watch for your periods. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
