I am on microgynon contraceptive pill and have been for a few years. Here and there I forget to take it, maybe 3 times in a month in different weeks..
anyway, the past two weeks I’ve had some strange things happening that I have not experienced before. I’ve been constipated, which I have never had before, and I haven’t changed my diet or been on medication Etc. I’ve also had a strange metallic taste in my mouth after eating. Most prominently, I have been STARVING all the time. Again, no change in diet. Like literally I will have a big lunch, an hour later my stomach is rumbling again.
My question is, I didn’t have my break from the pill when I was meant to as I didn’t want my period over Xmas. When I first started getting these symptoms I figured maybe its my body telling me it needs a break/crazy hormones. But I’m still worried I could be pregnant. I did bleed when I had my break – is that poss if you are on the pill but didn’t realise you are pregnant???
ive finished my period now and still have the same symptoms, plus a regular kind of crampy and generally uncomfortable feeling in my stomach. Kind of like period pain. But not sure if that’s side effect of the constipation. (Which has been a little better today after eating lots of bran and drinking tons of water)
This might sound silly to some of you but I’m really confused, I am going to get a test but is it possible to get a false result if you are on and pill and have had a bleed?
i was trying to contact my doctor all day for some advice from the nurse but its been impossible to get through.
any advice appreciated, thank you!
