I'm on Tri-Sprintec (generic Ortho Tri Cyclen) and have never missed a pill/been late. I've been on it for 6 months. The last time I had sex was 5 weeks ago, but I got my period a week later (which was early, yet a week long and heavy). Since then, I've recently been experiencing pregnancy symptoms such as very tender breasts, nausea, and slightly enlarged/firm abdomen (perhaps I'm imagining this one). I've taken dozens of pregnancy tests and they're all negative. Could I still be pregnant, despite the period and negative tests?

Given how many tests you have taken and the fact that you use the pill properly, it'd be very unlikely.

Now, things like abdominal changes are not going to happen this early in a pregnancy no matter what, but given you are having all of those symptoms, can you check in with a doctor to see what is is that may be causing them? While pregnancy doesn't seem likely, if those symptoms have been ongoing for weeks, I'd suggest getting them checked out to see what they are from.
