I am worried about something that has been happening since about three days but I am not sure if it has to do with a pregnency. First, I have been feeling dizzy lately and also tired but I work a lot so that could also be the explanation. I also have headaches and my heart beats very fast. It always happends at around the same time in the afteernoon. Sometimes I feel some nausea but I never throw up. I was wondering if this could be pregnancy signs. I am on the pill but I forgott to take it once. I though it was not so important beacuse I always use condoms and at no point did any of the condoms get damaged (I always checked afterwards). I will like to know if there is still a probability for me to be pregnant.
Thanks a lot for the help!

One late or missed pill in a cycle shouldn't be a big deal, and since you've also been using condoms for all genital contacts and did not have any condom failures, you can assume that pregnancy is not a concern here.

So if you're feeling dizzy and tired it may be from working a lot, or from a cold, or for some other reason. If you don't feel better in a couple of days, it couldn't hurt to call a doctor.
