Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the pregnancy status without examining you. Women are known to get pregnant even while being on hormonal contraceptives. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
