Maybe i'm just over reacting here, but I think i'm pregnant! My period isn't supposed to come until monday (i'm on the pill, so i'm very regular), but something just doesn't feel right 'down there' and'in there'. The only reason i'm questioning the ability of my pill (yasmin) to do what it was supposed to do is because i've also started taking a new antidepressent medicines and had a stint with antibiotics since my last period. My new meds are remeron and klonopin and my antibiotic was zithromax. I can only find test that test up to four days (and only with 50% accurancy). What else can I do? What can I look for??
Also, just as some other side info, i've been extremely hungry lately . . . I've gained 15 pounds and I can eat a plate of sweet gerkins every night! Shocked

Sweetheart, by all means go get a preganancy test, just to be on the safe side, and remember to take it with your first morning urine. It is better to be safe than sorry. Do you want to be pregnant? Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please let me know what you decide to do.

Antibiotics taken with birth control pills strongly decrease their effectiveness. Take a pregnancy test to be sure and if it comes out negative discuss this with your doctor. He/she may make some changes on perscriptons that can be combined with your bcp.

Good luck!

Truthfully . . . No.
I wanted to be pregnant.
I know it sounds maybe kind of 'stuck up' and 'self centered' but I feel i'm ready for a child. I'm getting married to the man I love with all my heart next month, we are both in strong jobs (i'm in child care, I only make 8.50/hour at the moment, but it will be increasing soon - plus I can get a discount on taking our child(ren) there). My husband (to be) is a marketing consultant and makes $21/hour. He says it's too expensive and he's making me wait at least 4 years before even trying . . . It makes me so upset whenever I think about it. I don't understand what his problem is, but whenever I bring it up he always throws a fit . . . It's so fustrating!
I'm ready for a baby in our lives, I know what it intails (i've been with children all my life - my mom babysit since I was little), and we have the great support of our parents . . . . But it doesn't seem to be enough for him. He says "if it happens, then it does, but we aren't trying until *whatever the date was he had in his mind*". And if I quit my b/c and don't tell him in order to get pregnant and he finds out he already promised me how livid he'd be.
I can handle a baby and i'm ready for one . . . I want one so bad. I try to understand his concerns but everyone he has there's no evidence behind (the cost, the problems, etc . . . ) except for "well, *so and so's* *such and such* says . . .. " Sad
