I have been taking Beyaz since May 2011. I had cycles in June and July while on the inactive pills, but have not had a cycle since. No symptons of pregnancy have surfaced and I have taken 5 pregancy tests, and they all are saying negative. I have contacted my gyno and they have told me this is a normal reaction, but the earliest appoinment is only avaliable at the end of October. I take my pill at the same time everyday, and never missed a pill, and always use a second form of birth control. I do not know if this is my body getting use to the hormones, or something else is wrong that I am unaware of.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active (without additional protection) during the first month of the birth control pill use, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. The appearance of pregnancy symptoms depends on how your body responds to changing hormonal status during pregnancy. Some women an experience most of the symptoms very early whereas few women may not experience any symptoms the only symptom being missed periods or altered periods). Sometimes you can also miss 1-2 periods while being on hormonal contraceptive pills as the hormonal pills can also affect other hormonal levels and cause period abnormalities. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately) if pregnancy is suspected. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
