Hi ladies, I hope you can help me decide whether I have reason to worry or not.
I have been on BC for a little over a year now. Fiance and I do not have any plans for a baby in the near future as we are both finishing up grad school. We are very careful. I take my BC everyday, and the majority of the time we use condoms for extra protection (although we don’t always put them on right away sorry Too Much Information I know!)
Okay now for my question. We are in a LDR and only get to see each other about once a month. The last time we saw each other was the weekend of Jan 14th. I was on my non active pills at the time (I usually have a super light flow), and we may have (I can’t remember for sure) not used a condem once or twice. I didn’t really think anything about this. I had my annual appt with my gyn on the 26th. I had spotting for a few days afterwards, and I just assumed it was from the pap although I had never experienced bleeding after a pap test before. Last Tues. I noticed that I felt warm took my temp, and I had a temp of 99 which for me (I usually run around 96) is a little elevated. I thought I was coming down with something, but I felt fine. I’ve had an elevated temp everyday since and still feel fine. I also started noticing some lower back pain lately and cannot think of a reason why my back would hurt. Today I started having to pee more frequently and since today is usually the day my period would begin (and it hasn’t) a lightbulb kinda went off and I thought could I be pregnant?
Sorry this has gotten so long. I know I’m probably just freaking out for no reason, but I would love to hear input from someone else.
