Curious About Signs And Symptoms

Jen - February 7

I have been spotting between periods for the past few months but I'm on the pill. I'm not sure what this means and lately I've been thinking maybe I'm pregnant. About a month ago I was sick for a few days but that was it. I have been pretty bloated lately and it isn't going away and I've gained about 5 pounds. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me some signs to look for. I was also wondering what the possibility is that someone would continue having there period. And is it easy to be pregnant and not realize it if your not thinking about it. Please help, I am very confused and worried.

All or most birth control pills/patches trick your body into thinking it is pregnant. That is basically what keeps you from getting pregnant (i.e. the horomones in contreceptives). Read the packet or the little folded up piece of paper that comes with your pills and look under side effects. The majority of them will be....PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS!!!! I know how confusing it is for you feeling pregnant, but your unless you've missed pills or haven't been taking it correctly, the chances of pregnancy are slim.

I used to spot a lot when I was on the pill. My doctor tried to change my pill several times before taking me off all together. Turns out I have a hormonal imbalance that causes the spotting. There are pills to reverse it, but you cannot get pregnant while on these pills - it's harmful to a developing fetus. HOPEFULLY you don't have abnormal uterine bleeding like I do... It's misery!!!
