I’m a little confused…..you did have your period or are you late?  If you had your period, and your on the pill and you got a BFN I would say your not pregnant. It could be that you are having these symptoms because of the BC and your body is still getting use to it which could also be the reason why your cycle has fluctuated. This is common for when you first start BC. How long have you been on it??

If youve had a period(even if somewhat lighter than normal),are on the pil and have had a BFN I woould say its highly unlikely that you are pregnant, however there is a very,very slim chance it might be possible. Maybe its your body getting back to normal after the stress of a wedding, bad days at work, etc.  A

lso, Ive realised that once you start noticing symptoms and pregnancy springs to mind, its all you can think of and you can pick up on small things you may have not noticed before, and exaggerates them.

For example, one month I had it in my head that I was 100% pregnant after I felt run down,bloated and a little sick. After that I noticed I could smell things from miles away, certain foods made me ill, and felt sick in the morning every morning for about a week. It wasnt so much that it was in my head,but every little thing I noticed and made it a huge thing. I wasnt pregnant btw!

When is your next period due?

Maybe. But probably it’s all in your head:) I’ve been pregnant twice and those symptoms don’t usually start until 6-ish weeks after a BFP.

Just keep track of your cycle and test again if the symptoms continue. But PP are probably right, it’s likely your BC causing the symptoms.

If you got your period and a negative pregnancy test then you are not pregnant. You definitely didn’t test too early if you tested after your period. Its all in your head.

@Big Truck:  Well, I was 12 days late before I got a BFP (the other tests were all negative). So I was 5 weeks pregnant when I finally got a positive; that could be due to my hcg levels, though. However, I didn’t have ANY bleeding at all. It’s possible, but not likely.

I got pregnant while taking the pill perfectly. I also had implantation bleeding that I thought was a light period. I would go to the doctor and get a blood test to make sure – only way to really know for sure!
