Me and my boyfriend have been together for a year and a half, and we have been having unprotected sex for a while now and haven't had condoms. However I am on birth control, and have been on it for a year, and never missed a pill, take it at the same time every day, last week my mom wasn't around to remind me in the morning to take it, so for a week I was taking it later maybe around 12-4pm... I have had symptoms like...nausea, and moodiness, (which I am usually both...just a LOT more lately) I have had constipation which I never get, a nose bleed I have never had before (I've heard that it could be a sign of being pregnant) and white discharge. It is too soon to take a test. Do you think I could be pregnant?

If the first test is negative, wait another 7 days and take another one. If that's negative too you're probably in the clear period or no period.
If either of them is positive go to a doctor, but you're probably pregnant. False positives are almost unheard of without significant hormone affecting drugs and false negatives do happen on very rare occasion.

It can have lots of side effects even when you take it punctually every day. If that routine has been changed to a different time every day, yes it could be the pill causing it. But there is always that low percent chance of still getting preganant while on the pill so take a pregnancy test you can buy at the pharmacy. I suggest you see an gynecologist even if the answer is that you are not pregnant. You need to let dr. know what symptoms and side effects you are having on the pill. See what he recommends, perhaps a different brand pill. If you dont want to have to worry about remembering to take it, or fuss with other options, then ask for information about an IUD, intra unterine device. When I married at 20 I had one put in so we wouldnt have kids right away. Dr.s tend to not want to use one on a woman who hasn't had kids, why? I don't know but I never suffered any side affects or cramps. [ Dragonflymagic's advice column | Ask Dragonflymagic A Question ]
