this week would of been when I normally would of 'come on' however had all the pains suggesting I was going to but nothing still!
I took a PG test and came up negative... I'm assuming I am not PG from the previous time around the first missed pills however I am not sure if the last few times of having unprotected would mean by the time my next period comes I may have a bigger chance of being PG as I have now been off the pill since the 10/01?!

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you miss 2 or more than 2 active pills in the pill pack, you no longer remain protected. Any intercourse after that can lead to pregnancy. The symptoms that you have could be due to pregnancy. Be in rest and regular with medications to control blood pressure. Monitor blood pressure regularly. Do not delay your visit to your gynecologist for a thorough examination and blood tests to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests show high incidence of false negative results, so they cannot be relied upon for accuracy.
Take care.
