    Yes, most likely

    No, just hormones thrown off.

     If you miss a week of pills then yes, you can become pregnant (assuming your partner ejactulated inside you).  But that being said, if you are not getting positive tests then your “symptoms” are just related to hormone fluctuation between being on, off, and on again with the pills.  If you’re pregnant enough for real pregnancy symptoms, you’re pregnant enough to get a positive test.  I would say you should be able to test 14-16 days from the last time you had unprotected sex and that result will be accurate.  But please follow the instructions from your pill pack before having unprotected sex again to ensure you are protected.  

    Also, you would get a positive test 2-3 days after implantaiton.  If you’re getting negative tests, you are not currently pregnant. Since I don’t know what timeframe this all occured, it is possible you could still end up pregnant until either (1) AF arrives or (2) 2-3 weeks have passed since the unprotected sex and you are getting negative tests at that point.

    Your timing doesn’t sound great if you were trying, but if you did ovulate like the ‘average cycle’ then you may have been in the early days of your fertile period.  I’m not sure how quickly starting to take your pills provided protection again, so there’s a chance that if you had sex between the 14th and 16th you could be more fertile and unprotected, but given that I’m not a doctor, I can’t be sure.

    That said, all the symptoms you described are typical pregnancy symptoms, but ALSO typical of a normal luteal phase (which you may be experiencing given that your lapse in BC may have allowed you to ovulate, which your body isn’t used to doing).  If you did conceive, you’d be likely to know within the next couple of days…. again, all assuming average cycles.

    Since you took 3 pregnancy tests you’re most likely not pregnant, however it was possible.

    Also if you missed your pill for a full week you might not be protected now, depending on when that week was and when your period was so it would be best for you to use condoms until you’ve had a full pill cycle.

    If there are enough pregnancy hormones in your system to cause “symptoms” there would be enough for a positive pregnancy test.

    So, likely the symptoms you have are a side effect of your hormones being thrown off wack and not pregnancy. But you COULD be pregnant, you’ll have to wait and keep testing.

    lovekymie12 :  Light pink discharge sounds like spotting/break through bleeding which could be a normal sign of missing so many pills. 

    In my case implantation spotting (from pregnancy) was dark brown/old blood colored. 

    As a PP said, make sure to use a back up method of birth control until you get your period and regulate back onto your pills.
