For some reason it just seems like I've been extremelely hungry lately and my stomach is getting a little pouchy? I really trying to wait until my period gets here but it's irregular all the time so what should I do?

You haven't stated this so i have to ask ... Have you actually had a significant pregnancy risk? Were you using protection? Are you and your partner trying to get pregnant?

We don't advise that people go by symptoms of pregnancy ... Often times, it's way too early for symtpoms to even appear. Most women don't know they're pregnant until they've missed at least one period.

So, when is your period due? You can wait until you're due for your period, and if it doesn't come then, you can take a test. If you're curious now and it's been 10-14 days since your last risk, you can take one now.

It's my boyfriend of almost 4 years and Im on b-control and yes we've had unprotected sex. Im just afraid that we've messed up that's all. Im more nervous than afraid actually.

If you're on birth control and have been taking it properly, your chances of pregnancy are pretty darn slim.

If you don't trust the pill alone (and believe me, a lot of people don't ... My partner and i use BCPs AND condoms), you need to be using a backup method. Condoms work well.
