Pregnant Levora effects ?

Hi all,

My girlfriend has been using Levora birth control pills regularly for three months now. We use Levora as our only line of defense against pregnancy. This past Monday, she decided to skip her period using the pills and immediately began her fourth cycle on Levora.

A few days later, she began experiencing pregnancy symptoms including sore breasts, back aches, brown vaginal discharge and consistent morning nausea. She took a pregnancy test on Tuesday which was negative. on Friday, she took another test which resulted in an "inconclusive" response. (No positive faint or otherwise, no negative, just a line indicating an inconclusive value.) She is fairly certain that she took the test correctly, as she's taken pregnancy tests before. After work, she's going to take another pregnancy test. We're both pretty nervous at the prospect of her being pregnant!

My question is this: Could this be at all associated with the fact that she skipped her period week by taking active pills instead of placebo pills? Or are these signs most definitely early signs of pregnancy?

Much help would be appreciated as we're both pretty much freaking out about it.

All of the symptoms your girlfriend is experiencing could be related to the pill. Also, when you are worried about being pregnant, your body may subconsciously give you symptoms even though there is nothing to be worried about.

If she takes her pills every day, does not have diarrhea/vomiting, and is not taking a contradicting medication, your chances of pregnancy are VERY VERY slim. In which case, it is very very doubtful that she is pregnant.
Don't freak out too much (although I know thats hard) and take another test soon, although I don't think you have anything to be worried about.
