Hi everyone,

I am on the pill and take it every morning at the same time, have never missed a day. My period always shows up on the second "no hormones" day, and hasn't been erratic since I began this pill, almost a year ago. My period was expected on May 22 and came on that day in the afternoon. That same day, I was very ill and nauseous and vomiting all day. My period, however, only lasted that half day. There was not even any spotting on the following days. So my period only lasted 1/2 a day when it is normally 4-5. It was also lighter than usual, but it's usually light on the first day.

Since then, I have had spells of intense nausea daily. It's mostly in the late morning, and then again in the late afternoon and evening. I have had occasional back pain and severe headaches, and in the last few days I have had PMS symptoms on and off, such as cramps and my face has broken out (my skin is usually really clear..). My appetite has also been abnormal, where I feel really hungry, but when I go to eat I lose my appetite. Last night all I wanted for dinner was a big bowl of steamed cauliflower...

I took a home pregnancy test on June 29th and it was negative right away (like 5 seconds after the negative line was there). I have still been feeling sick though, so I went to the doctor yesturday. He had me do a urine test at the clinic and said it was negative, but that my symptoms are those of pregnancy. He had me go to the lab and do a blood test this morning, so I am now waiting for the results. I just did another HPV because I am so nervous, and the horizonal (negative line) is very dark. If I look reallllly carefully, I can see a second line, but it is VERY faint and I could be imagining it.

I am not sure when the day of conception would have been, as I live with my boyfriend and we are sexually active many times a week.

Can anyone give me advice? What are the chances that a blood test would come up positive when a urine test has not?

Thanks for your help!

If you are pregnant the blood test will tell you!!! Try taking the test the first thing you get up in the morning!! that is the best time to take a pregnancy test!! You could be so early in the pregnancy that the homones aren't strong enough yet to pick up in your urine!!!

Did you take a pregnancy test and find out any results. I am in the exact same boat as you (living with my boyfriend, take the pill every day at 10:30 without missing a beat). I have the same symptoms even with the eating. What was your result??

Yes what did you find out!?
I am in the very same situation, this is very weird. Nauseous every afternoon, headaches almost daily and lower back pain. I am on the Nuva ring and have been on time every time for a year. I had it this last time but it was very short, like a day and a half. Let us know what you find out snapdragons!

Am I Pregnant?
I'm having the exact same thing! Headaches, nauseous morning and night, early and short period and I'm always on the same time every month?! Hungry but when I get food I'm not?! I can usually tell I'm due on as I get pms quite badly and cramps the day before but I've had none of that?! Haven't taken a test as don't want to feel silly but we are trying for a baby. Very strange! Kieshia123

I'm scared of the same! I can't remember missing a pill at all, AND my boyfriend uses a condom EVERY time we have sex. Still, lately I've been receiving a dull, prodding pain in my lower right side (ovary-adjacent), and have been nauseous every afternoon the past two weeks. I'm fine in the morning, fine in the evening, but if I so much as eat a banana after 11am, I'm nauseous. Haven't thrown up yet, but in addition to this I was spotting a reddish brown discharge yesterday... I took a test about two weeks ago and it was negative. I went to the doctor for a pap and mentioned the pain (though not the nausea and the spotting hadn't started yet) and she told me that if the pap came back normal, I should make an appt for an ultrasound!
This can't be happening. 99.9% protection from the pill + 85% protection from CONSTANT condom use should equal 0 fetuses!

i need some advice please. i have taken three tests. first, positive. second, faint. third negative. i was a month late for my period. ive never missed a period before or been that late. i finally started , i think, it was a brownish color. Not normal for me. i know my body and i know that something is going on. im gaining weight, which is unusual because i have a very high metabolism and i have never gotten to 100pounds. i feel sick, but dont get sick. im tired. always aggrivated. im just really confused about whats going on with me. i need help,but dont want to be humiliated again.
