Oh yeah, not trying at all right I am on the pill but was on meds for a bladder infection and cold sore over the past 2 to 3 months. my wedding is in september…… :/ very mixed emtions right now.

Personally, I would wait to say anything to your Fiance until you are sure. If you aren’t sure about the at home tests, you might want to go to a doctor for a blood test. Antibiotics can make BC less effective.

I’d just take a test. no need to keep thinking about it, when the test will determine what’s the deal. Good luck whatever way you want it to go!

Definetly take a test. ATB and meds definetly make BC less effective.

Personally, I would tell my Fiance. We are both excited about TTC.
It depends on your situation. I would take the test alone if you think it would stress him out unnecessarily just in the event it is negative. If you think Fiance will be ok with either result then tell him and take it together.

Take the test. Either way you’ll know, and information is always good. Good luck!

You REALLY need to take a test right away. If you are pregnant, you’ll need to stop taking your birth control.

I would take a test, you don’t know until you test. It’ll keep you from obsessing over it if you aren’t and you can decide what to do/when to tell your Fiance if you are.
Personally I didn’t even tell my Fiance I was taking a test and wouldn’t have ever told him if it was negative. We weren’t trying and I honestly didn’t think I was (I’ve had crazy cycles all last year). I thought something else was wrong and I wanted to test so I could tell my dr I got a negative. Turns out it was positive. If I had thought I was pregnant I could not have waited to find out.
I told Fiance via text message LOL. I know that sounds bad but I sent him one saying “I have something really important to tell you do you want to know now or when you get home from work?” After I sent that I looked at the clock and had like 6 hours before we’d see each other. I am horrible at keeping secrets like that and I was so excited I had to tell someone so I sent another one saying ” I can’t wait that long!! I took a pregnancy test and it is positive” and attached a picture of the positive test. He was over joyed! It was probably a little selfish of me to tell him that way but he knows my personality. I get so excited about things and can’t keep them to myself or it is a great struggle to LOL.

I’d just go take the test for your own peace of mind. I was in a very similar situation last weekend and the ladies here convinced me to take a test. I did and it was negative, so I never even metioned it to my husband. I didn’t see the point in stressing him out for nothing.
Now if we were TTC or I knew he’d be excited about a baby…I’d probably have told him and let him know I was testing. But in our case, we really aren’t in a position to have another baby, so I spared him the unnecessary worry.

The few times I took a test, I didn’t tell Darling Husband until after. He gets super paranoid and I was pretty sure I wasn’t pregnant (was going off BC and cycle was wonky). If I really thought that I might have been, I probably would have told him before I took it. Definitely take another for peace of mind.

ok thanks everyone! I did take a test in November because I never really got my period. TMI-more brown discharge than anything and it lasted 2 days and normally it 2 full days 3 light days but it was negative then. So I was thinking it may just be my BC because I switched in July and sometime my body takes awhile for it to adjust to new BC then December it was same discharage but 3 days b4 my period was due and then a day b4 my period was due I had a little blood but mostly just discharge for 2 days. Now here Feb I havent had anything and Im 4 days late today… so Im going to take a test tonight or tomorrow morning when I get out. I would love to be a mom just bad timing right now but everything happens for a reason and we def want children just wasnt planning on one right now but if so oh well. Thanks again

Are you on a low dose pill? I just started a new pill also and my 1st period on it was super light and short. Only one day seemed like almost an actual period day, the others were more just kind of a spotting like you said. I’ve read that it’s common to not get a period at all when on some types of birth control. Definitely take a test just to be sure, but I would guess it’s just from the pill too.

When I got pregnant I didn’t tell him until I took a test and it came up positive. I wasn’t sure on how he would react so I didn’t want to scare him for nothing if it came up negative. Well, it was positive and I told him right away.
If I were you I would take one first thing tomorrow morning, since that is when tests are most accurate, and then tell him if you are. If it is negative don’t even bother mentioning it unless you want to joke about it with him. lol

i agree to just take a test, most tests now a days can usually detect BEFORE you miss your period, so if you have already missed it, the answer it gives you is probably right.
