I was sexually active from June 19th to July 3rd and I was on the pill during this time. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship. I was supposed to get my period during the last week of june but I continued to take a new pack of pills to avoid getting my period. I got my period which was dark brown and clumpy on July 13th while I still had three more pills for that month to go. I decided to go off the pill after being on pill for almost a year. So after my period in July I haven't taken my pill and I haven't had sex. I have been really PMSING for the past 2 weeks, I have terrible back ache, I am constantly tired, I was feeling nauseous and I am really emotional lately(these are some symptoms of pregnancy). Today it is August 15th and I should have gotten my period few days ago, I feel like my period is coming and when I check it is a white vaginal discharge which feels like egg white(sorry for tmi), I usually get this few days before my period but I feel like this time it is longer. Is this because my hormones have gone a little crazy because I continued my pills without taking a break or is there a chance I could be pregnant? I hope to hear from you
If you have taken the pills regularly before stopping them then chances of pregnancy are rare.Since you took the pills continuously and then stopped them it would have caused sudden changes in the hormonal levels and that might be causing the described symptoms.Usually after stopping the pills it takes few months for the periods to be regularized.
Wait for the periods they might start in few days.If they do not start even after 10 days consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
