i recently got off birth control. well it was more like forgetting to take it and stopping it too early thinking i was already done with that pack..

i visited my fiance and had sex (unprotected) on may 25th.

my period was very light and i got that on june 5 or 6th. i think it was just spotting. however now it's 2 weeks later and i'm getting period like cramps that are constant, my breasts are sore and my nipples feel as though they are raw. i'm extremely tired and i'm not usually tired like this. i feel as though i can't get enough sleep. And there's a dull pain in my lower back. All pregnancy tests i have take have come out to be negative. there is also a different type of vaginal discharge i do not normally have. i have looked at pregnancy calculators and according to that it's possible i could be 2 weeks pregnant, however they say it may still be early to tell. someone please help!!

You don't sound pregnant. Your body needs to adjust after coming off birth control pills, that might be why you had a funky period.

If you still feel pregnant, go to the doctor and get a blood test.

Symptoms are caused by pregnancy hormones. If you have enough pregnancy hormones in your body to cause nausea and headaches and other pregnancy symptoms, then you'd be having positive tests.

Those symptoms don't seem to be related to pregnancy.
