Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the status of your pregnancy. The bleeding that you had in January is due to breakthrough bleeding due to the stopping of pills. Since you had unprotected intercourse, so chances of pregnancy cannot be ignored but this back ache and bloating can be due to premenstrual symptoms also.

For confirming the status of pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test (UPT),the most accurate way to test for pregnancy is to wait until after your period is due. First appearance of pregnancy hormone, HCG, due to implantation occurs 6-12 days after ovulation. So if you don’t want to wait for your periods and test for pregnancy then you can test at 9 or 10 days past ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test. Aimstrip pregnancy test gives good results and can detect 20 mIU of HCG.I sincerely suggest you to wait for your periods and do the test after 1 week of your missed periods date.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
