So to make a long story short, I haven't had sex in a few months now, the last time was in April I believe. I've been on Seasonale birth control for almost 2 years now and I schedule my periods so I only have it 4 times a year like the pill instructs. Although since April I've had 2 periods and now all of a sudden I've been experiencing a bit of bloating and now I'm cramping and having nausea from time to time. I've gained a bit of weight over the past year (prob from the alleged "freshmen 15" hah) but my stomach sometimes looks bigger which is making me stress out. I know you can't be pregnant if you have a period but I've also heard theres like a slight chance its still possible. If someone can give me some advice I'd GREATLY appreciate it. It would help ease my mind a bit.

Thanks!

If you've been taking the pill correctly, then there's very little chance of pregnancy -- the stuff you're describing could be symptoms of a lot of things.

However, I think that the best thing to do for your peace of mind would just be to get and take a home pregnancy test. Then you'll know for sure, and you can work on ruling out other things that might becausing bloating, cramping, and nausea (such as the hormone formulation in Seasonale).
