I think it's really odd because I just had my "period" (withdrawal, I know) on my placebos this week. Though all this month I've had tender breasts and they're still continuing during my period. What's up with that? Typically I just get them a week or two before my period and it disappears.

It's becoming uncomfortable. I don't want to read into it so much as pregnancy since I'm on the pill and I take them correctly but it's just really odd..because being pregnant you don't get your period or just not a regular one right?

I'm downright confused with my symptoms. Perhaps they're messed up.

You're probably safer not jumping to the conclusion that you're pregnant, good for you. I'm not sure why you'd be experiencing breat tenderness; so I'd actually advise trying to see your gynecologist, or at least calling the office and asking questions. This could possibly be some trouble with the prescription or something else your body is going through that is causing this, so your safest best is probably to check with a professional. Hope it gets sorted out.

yeah I'll be calling if it continues like this though I have been on microgen before and if it is that, I'm not sure why it'd start acting up now.

do you know how likely it would be that I could be pregnant and having my period?

I'll probably just end up taking a test to assure that then going to a doctor.

If you had a normal period (about the same length, flow, consistancy it usually is; using more than one tampon/pad for at least a couple days or more) you cannot be pregnant. Since many birth control prescriptions will make women have much lighter and shorter periods, however, it may not hurt to check if yours is normally light and short.

Just pay attention to your body and I'd say check with a gynecologist sooner than later.

the weird thing with my period this time (it stopped today so it went on for three days) was mostly brown - old blood I think I heard it refered to by Smurf on the sex section of this forum. there was only one day of actual normal red blood. and it's been really funky...like occuring and going away for almost a whole day. then coming back.

ackies.
