For the past month or so I haven't really been feeling like myself. First off I'm always hot, I wake up in the middle of the night sweating and having to pee or I can be doing any normal day activity and have to pee extremely bad. I feel the urge to vomit after eating or just the sight of food makes me sick to my stomach, sometimes I'll even be so hungry but cannot eat because I don't want anything I don't have a taste for and other times I choose not to eat because there might be a metallic taste in my mouth while I'm eating. I sleep like I haven't slept in days, I have back pains and stomach cramps for no reason at all. My nipples have been very tender to the touch (even my own) and they've been itching. I've noticed my face breaking out, which I am not used to, sudden headaches, and an increase of vaginal discharge, that has no smell and is white and milky like. Normally I would've went to the doctors when the symptoms first began but my menstrual cycle has been coming on, late but nevertheless its been on, although this month it was light and stayed on for about three days. I took three at home pregnancy tests weeks after one another and they all turned up negative, then my mom told me no woman in my family has ever passed the urine test. Is this enough reason to go get tested or should I just stop worrying because my period is coming on? [Confused]

HI Mookie,

One thing I'm not clear on here is whether you've been engaging in the types of sexual activity that can lead to pregnancy. If so, have you been using birth control? How long ago was this sexual activity?

Let's start there, okay? [Smile]

Yes I have been engaging in sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy, I am on birth control but I'm not too good with pills. I have been doing good keeping up with them bit there have been occasions when I forgot to take it, then remembered and picked it right back up.

When you forgot your pills, how late were you? Did you remember to take them within 12 hours of your pill time, or was it later than that?

Alright. So it sounds like you should be well within the typical use rate of the pill, which is around 92%. Since you've also been getting your period and have had negative results on a pregnancy test, it's safe to say that you are not pregnant.

So, your next step would be making an appointment with your doctor, to sort out why you've been feeling so unwell.

That's good to hear, but I believe I'll still go get tested because my fiancé' just informed me of his stomach hurting and him vomiting.

Well, if he has the flu, maybe you've been passing a bug back and forth between the two of you. Sounds like it is time for you to see a doctor!
