Im 18 and ive been taking birth control for about a month and a half now. And just a little over a week ago me and my bf had unprotected sex, and around the time we had the unprotected sex I forgot to take my pill a couple days and took them at a later time. And 3 or 4 days ago ive started to feel very sick to my stomach all day long, ive throw up a coupletimes. Extreally bad cramps all day. Muscle pains, head aches. And now ive started spotting, it dark brown in color. Ive had a couple people say that I was pregnant, but I went to the hospital and they never said anything about being pregnant, they said a gas problem, but did a urine test. So I have to wait for the results but its driving me crazy waiting. Any feedback would really help me.

You have to wait for the results on a urine test? Odd. Have you taken a home pregnancy test at home?

you would not have pregnancy symptoms from having sex a little over a week ago. A urine pregnancy test would not show positive yet (even from the hospital!) because it is too soon.

Did you tell the .E.R doctor any of this? Like your history of not taking your birth control pills? When was your last period?

It is important to always take your birth control pills as directed because it can mess up your cycle. You very well could be bleeding because your hormones have been messed up. Some women start bleeding if they've missed their pills by a few hours!

If your period is late, take a home pregnancy test with your first morning urine. If that test is negative, go see your doctor.

Good luck.

I don't even think hospitals have the equipment to show a week old pregnancy.

Brown blood = old blood.

You wouldn't have any symptoms of pregnancy yet.
