been tired and having vivid dreams!

User Profile
I have sore, heavy feeling breasts that are tender to the touch. I also have been having a lot of gas, been tired and having vivid dreams. And I have been very emotional lately. I get upset over nothing. Oh, and I have had a lot of vaginal discharge and always feel like I am wet- but it doesn't smell bad like an infection would, I think. The symptoms sound like I could be pregnant, but I am on birth control and have been for about 8 months. I haven't switched or anything lately. My last period started on March 2nd. What could be my problem?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms (sore, tender and heavy feeling breasts, gassy feeling, increased tiredness, vivid dreams, mood changes, increased vaginal changes) suggest possibility of pregnancy. It is not uncommon to see women getting pregnant while being on the birth control. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and blood HCG test done to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
