If you’re having pretty noticeable symptoms an FRER should show. 

implantation bleeding is about 2 or so days so your theory COULD be true. 

It it could also be that your lax pill taking has messed with your hormone levels. doubling up , missing, doubling up, missing.  You could be confusing your innards! Haha

lastly while birth control can dry up your CM, it is normal to have CM while taking.  The brown bleeding could have been left over from your wonky period, could be old breakthrough bleeding when you missed a pill. Etc 

 

only way to really know is to test.  What CD are you ?

@blondie_bride:  The intense cramping and the brown urine sounds sketchy to me. If it were me, I’d call my doctor to see what she thinks.

Edit: sketchy as in “this should not be happening.” Sorry, I just realized that word could be taken many ways!

Even if you are pregnant it would be too early to tell. We’ll count your last BCP period as CD1 (cycle day)… most people don’t ovulate before CD 12 MINIMUM!! If, for the sake of argument you ovulated on CD 10(really early!!), you’re 2DPO. If an egg has been fertilised its still in your tubes & your body doesn’t even know about it. Any symptoms you’re experiencing are unrelated.

Either way, I don’t think you did ovulate that early. I really doubt you’re pregnant.

i think it’s more than likely b/c you’ve been taking your pills incorrectly a lot.

When you skip/miss pills on BCP, it’s pretty common to get cramping and spotting. It’s a side effect of skipping/missing the pills as it’s similar to taking the placebo and then eventually getting your period. The fact that you had a light period is also a part of taking BCP. This is all normal. I think it’s doubtful that you are pregnant as you are still on BCP even though you could be better about taking your pills.

@blondie_bride:  If you don’t want to count your last AF as CD1, then you would test positive if you were. 

Again, I believe you incorrectly taking you pills has a lot to do with it…also just to note, if you’ve been taking BCP for some time, it could be a while for you to regulate, so to take that into account when NTNP.

@blondie_bride:  If your “AF” was IB (which I don’t think it is from the volume you described), then you’ll test positive, as the other bees have said.

I think you’re being kind of silly by not just buying a dollar store test & being done with it. None of us can give you a definitive answer and the hormones you take from birth control (if its progesterone based) would give you the same symptoms as pregnancy.

I was on BCP for a long time.  I wasn’t that great at taking it all the time.  I would sometimes miss 3 days in a row.  Horrible I know, but I never had any accidental pregnancies.  However, I would almost always have breakthrough bleeding if I missed that many days in a row.  It was like missing the pills was signaling my body that it was that time of the month.

So it’s also really possible that missing days has thrown your cycle out of whack.

If you are pregnant, you would miss your next period.

This is easy to figure out, just go take a test!  If you really think you are 2 weeks since implantation…it would definitely show up on a pregnancy test.

no clue, my guess it’s from your inconsistency in taking the pill, but anything is possible.  I’d wait 2 weeks from the last time you had unprotected sex and test then.
