Well this is my first post on the forums and after searching for awhile I realize that wow, do men have it easy! :-p we have to worry about all of these issues but of course there are the men out there that are supportive and caring, so I guess it evens out somewhat.
I know there are several posts on here and hopefully someone can give me some insight, or hope even...
I am a 22 year old woman who is overall pretty healthy. I have never had any serious medical problems and my blood pressure is low. I work out several times a week. I am sexually (monogmasly) active but use birth controli have recently been showing symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome. I am getting blood work done in a few days but am currently very concerned with my situation. I have been on yasmin birth control for about 2 1/2 years and stopped taking it in april. (before going on the pill my periods were not regular) after stopping the pill I did not have my period in may, june or july but there is little chance that I would get pregnant since I used a condom when I did have sex and would have my boyfriend not reach climax during intercourse. I just started yasmin again the last week of july. I did not miss any pills but did not take them at the exact same minute everyday (usually within the same hour). I had sex on the 8th day of the pack of pills without a condom (again, I asked him to refrain from climaxing during intercourse). I am now on the fourth day of the sugar pills and I have not gotten my period :(
i have had sore breasts, dizziness and trouble sleeping. Upon starting the pill I began to have frequent urination (side effect of direutic in yasmin but also connected with pregnancy). I know these are some signs of pregnancy but are they also associated with starting the pill? I don't remember reacting this way before when starting but I could have forgotten since I wasn't sexually active then and wouldn't have made such a big deal out of it.
I did not know what day to start my pills since I wasn't having a period. I know that with absence of your cycle you can still ovulate.
I am so very nervous and haven't many I can talk to about this issue. If anyone out there can give me any insight on pcos, birth control (yasmin and it's effects) or pregnancy signs/symptoms/interactions with bc that would be great.
Furthermore, I know I should take a preg. Test, but I do need moral support. My friends think i'm overreacting but this is scary stuff....
Wow, miracle site...I made my first post last night and had my period this morning...A few days late but a relief after none for three months...Thanks for the post...I know there is still a chance I may be pregnant with a period but i'm much more relaxed now :)
