Okay, so I am on birth control. The "mini pill", where there is no off set week where I take the "sugar" pills. So my period is unpredictable. I usually have my period every 2 months or so.
I have been on this pill for about a year now.

My boyfriend & I have sex quite often, He doesn't use a condom, but of course pulls out when he is about to ejaculate
Lately, my nipples have been sore, and I have been extremely moody and have had a an increase in my appetite.

Usually when I am about to start my period I get moody and tend to eat a lot more, but I have never experienced my nipples being sore.

I haven't taken a pregnancy test. I am just hoping & waiting for my period to come.
I don't feel as if I am pregnant. I tend to over think things, But, i just want someone else's opinions.

Replys would be great!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment whether the symptoms that you describe can be attributed to prolonged use of hormonal contraceptive, or due to pregnancy. If you have had ovulation and had been sexually active around ovulation time, pregnancy chances are possible. The hormonal content of the pill can also lead to symptoms that mimic early pregnancy symptoms. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if your additional symptoms are persistent, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Stop the use of hormonal contraceptive if pregnancy is suspected, or if pregnancy gets confirmed.
Take care.
