This sounds weird, but i had sex on july 6th and didnt think m uch of it. However, i've been noticing that I have strange "periods" that do not last as long. I thought it may have something to do with going off the pill becaus eme and my boyfriend broke up, but know I am starting to get cravings for certain food, i cry atr everything, and have backpains. I was wondering if you could offer some sort of advice on what to do becuase about two days ago i had x-rays and I am worried something may be wrong with the kid and i do not want to have it because of this and medication i've nbeeen taking thats bad for pregnant people. i know this is confusing but PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

First of all: you need to take a pregnancy test. It's way, way, way more reliable than trying to guess whether you're pregnant or not on the basis of "symptoms" like crying or food cravings.

If you were taking the pill consistently and correctly while you were sexually active with your boyfriend, then the chance that you are pregnant is very low, so hopefully a test will put your mind at rest.

But if you are pregnant, you need to know about it as soon as possible so that you can make responsible decisions about what to do.
