A week after your withdrawl bleeding – probably not. But take a test just to be sure.

Doubtful. I’ve had cramps and breakthrough bleeding the week after the placebo pills. Also, if you really did get pregnant, it wouldn’t show up yet on a test. Wait and see if all is normal at the end of this pack.

Nope. It’s in your head. I’ve totally been there and was totally freaked out too. 

If you had your period/withdrawal bleed last week, you’re 99.99% not pregnant. Pregnancy cramps don’t happen until a week or two after ovulation.  It is almost impossible to ovulate during your period, let alone when you’re on a pill not to ovulate. Wait a week and take a test, but I promise you’re fine.

Personally, I do not think you’re pregnant. I’m pretty certain your ovulation time has not started yet ( but only you might know that). If you’re super worried about becoming pregnant while on the pill, i reccommend the My Days App. I used it before I was pregnant to track my periods but it also tells you your most fertile days and your ov day so you can avoid having sex those days!

Doubtful. I am also on BC and I get cramps at all times throughout the month. If you had a regular period only a week ago, it’s really, really, like REALLY, unlikely you’re preggers.

newbee89:  You know, since you are on the pill…you don’t have fertile days.  That’s the thing about the pill, it stops ovulation.  so no fertile days.  That app will not be correct for you. 

Even for people that are not on birth control, that app only guesses at what your fertile days are.  It may or may not be accurate.  It would be completely innacurate for me, I guarantee it.  That type of app is how people end up pregnant if they are “tracking their cycles” and just “not having sex on my fertile days” to avoid pregnancy.  Because it’s only guessing at your fertile days and is often times not accurate.

But again, you don’t have fertile days because you are on a pill that prevents them.

Maybe you just have an upset stomach or ate something your body didn’t agree with.

If you’re taking your pill correctly you shouldnt ovulate at all. That app won’t work for you. You should read up on the kind of pill that you’re taking so you know better how it works and what to do in case something goes wrong (like diarrhea within a few hours of taking a pill). The informational packet that comes with your pills should cover all that.

newbee89:  As other bees have said, if you take BCPs correctly, you prevent ovulation as it tricks your body into thinking it’s pregnant so it doesn’t release an egg each month. I highly, highly doubt you are pregnant. Only if you miss a pill do you become at risk. DH and I relied on just BCPs for almost 4 years and never had a pregnancy scare. Also…apps aren’t reliable even off BCPs because they often assume every woman has the “average” 28-day cycle naturally, which is so not the case. For example, my cycles are (I’m actually pregnant now-planned) around 33ish days. My body doesn’t ovulate until around CD20 and my period would arrive 13 days later.
