Well here it goes. I know a lot of people have asked this question and I have had a lot of people tell me the answer around me but I was wondering if this is possible or if it has happened to anyone so here it goes:
i missed 3 of my pills and had sex on each day of the missed pill. I suck at taking the pills b/c I always forget to take them. I work afternoon and nights so I always forget to take them but normally remember in the morning and take them then. Sometimes I take it regularly but sometimes I take it in the morning when I remember. Well I missed the 3 days and took all 3 the day I saw that I missed them. Which was probably nov. 1, 2, and 3. I then missed another 2 days 5 days later. Well just recently I have been having back aches, sharp pains in my abdomen, sick feeling, actually thrown up once today, and headaches at night. I took a test last thursday to calm my nerves it was negative. I know it was way too soon to even come up but I had to see that negative to reassure myself. I havent been really thinking about it and I started getting the sick feeling. Well now I want to take a test which I am tomorrow so I can see the negative and calm my nerves b/c I do really think its just nerves. And then im taking another one on tuesday since im suppose to get my period on the 23rd. My question is, do I have a really high risk of being pregnant with these symptoms or could it just be my nerves? I've been on the pill for 9 months already. Give me some advice please?!??!?!
Hi there -
i think it's very unlikely that you're pregnant. The symptoms you're having sound like things which can easily happen from taking the pill irregularly - taking 3 pills in one day especially can make a person feel very sick (it happened to me a few years ago).
Maybe you want to consider a different form of birth control since it's difficult for you to take the pill at the same time every day. The new hormonal iud could be good for you - it lasts 5 years and you don't have to do anything!
