Birth control symptoms or pregnant

I've had what I thought was my period two weeks ago it would fill a tampon. After I stopped taking my birth control. I've had sensitive breasts and there very swollen. I haven't had regular bowel movements either & I've been very bloated. I had sex the middle of July and I've taken two pregancy tests both have been negative but I'm still concerned. Are these symptoms just because I've stopped my birth control??

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If pregnancy test have been negative and if you have not been sexually active after your sexual contact in July, then chances of pregnancy may be ruled out. If symptoms that you have are persistent, then you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Further treatment options would be suggested based on your examination finding and evaluation results.
Take care.
