I had my yearly done last Wednesday the 13th, and everything was fine. But my question is.. can a pregnancy show up on pap results or does it just show up when you get blood drawn? Ever since yesterday my breasts have been sore, and I haven't been feeling well (but I'm bipolar and agoraphobic so a stomach ache is normal for me). I started my period on 12/10 and it was normal and I don't get my period again for another 2 weeks or so. I'm confused.. should I have anything to worry about?

Pregnancy will not show up on a pap test, only blood or urine tests (and they have to be testing specifically for pregnancy).

Have you actually had a pregnancy risk since your last period? If not, you cannot be pregnant.

If you have, and you're concerned, you can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the last risk.

Breast tenderness and other symptoms of pregnancy can also be symptoms of a number of other things; don't go by signs and symptoms.

Me and my husband have unprotected sex, and I'm on Ortho Evra. I was just wondering. I wasn't sure if a pregnancy would come up on a pap test or not. Thank you

Ahh, okay. This wasn't clear from your post.

Your chances of pregnancy on the patch (used properly and all) are very slim.
