Gas and bloating can be a sign of many things. Sore breasts, cramping and spotting is probably the first signs although not all women cramp or spot at implantation.

Unlikely. Marvalon's side effects are fluid retention, nausia, weight changes, headache, spotting, change in menstrual flow, breast tenderness, swelling of nipples, discharge from nipplesand rise in blood pressure. Unless you did not follow the instructions, it is very unlikely that you are pregnant.

Jazlyn, every pill reacts differently for different women. As long as it does it's job and you can live with the side effects it is good. Some pills are also better for young girls that are more likely to fail to use it as directed. These pills typicalla have higher doses of hormones. The mini-pills and low dose pills that have less side effects are more suited for mature and responsible women.

If you are unhappy with your bc, speak to your doctor. It will however be a trail and error process to find a 'better' pill.

I'm 9 days late and I have cramps and pressure in my lower abdomen like I could be starting my period. I have NEVER been late before. I've taken 2 HPT and both negative. I am nauseas almost every day and the cramps are the worst in the morning..I went to the doctor today for a pelvic exam- that was normal. Doctor said it could be too early to detect pregnancy. I just am worried because I've never been late! Could I be pregnant but too early to show on a test?

I'm really starting to think I'm pregnant. To start off as of right now I'm 4 days late. Last month I only experienced spotting when I was suppose to have my period. Five days ago I experienced spotting for a day. I've been feeling sick to my stomach on and off over the past few months. I'm still experiencing cramps and Ive also been gasy for the last month. My breasts were Tender last month but not really this month. I've also been gaining a lot of unexplained weight. Can someone please help me..... I've taken two pregnancy tests and I keep getting negatives
