Okay, so I'm new to these boards but I've spent countless hours surfing around on the net, trying to decipher my so-called "symptoms" and I was hoping I'd have some luck here. =) I started taking Yaz (bcp) in November, skipped my December period (on purpose), and stopped taking them mid-pack at the end of December. I started bleeding the next day (the 30th) and bled like a normal period for a week, then lightly for another week. Coming off the hormones will do that to you I suppose. According to my ovulation calendar, I was supposed to ovulate on the 14th of Jan. I had unprotected s_x the 13th, and then again on the 20th, in case I ovulated late (a week apart for good measure). I had some bleeding around the time that I was supposed to get my period, but it was different from my usual period. Again, I don't know if this has anything to do with coming off the hormones. It was shorter and mostly brown (old) blood, no clots, barely any cramping (unusal for me because I'm a religious pill popper at that time of the month). Started having symptoms the week after: extreme exhaustion (taking naps and I'm NOT a nap taker), sore br___ts, queasiness at night, heartburn, headaches, and dizzy spells. Took a hpt, got a bfn. Went to the dr the following week (or two later) thinking it may be something else more serious, they did a pee test there along with some blood work (not for pg, thyriod and anemia), and everything came back normal. Was supposed to ovulate again that weekend, but had protected s_x this time. Not sure if I "O" d. This week am having worse symptoms, including extremely painful heartburn, gas, burping episodes, sore nipples (with TONS of little white bumps around them) and more lightheadedness. Am due to start my period on Monday, a little less than a week away. I'm probably not going to test again until it's late, but what do you guys think? Sorry this was SO long, any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! =)

Oh, I forgot to add some of the more subtle things I've been having.... --Sore gums? --A bit of acne on my b___sts and belly --A few new freckles (or dark splotches showed up) on my belly and I never tan or have exposure to sun for that to happen --Runny nose --My nipples are getting wider... almost flatter.... usually I have very pointy nipples --My sense of smell is heightened... no aversions yet though --No discharge? I'm usually a pretty active girl down there, but lately I've been having a creamy discharge... almost like glue... on and off, but only for a little bit and then it seems to dry up again? Hope this helps!

Okay, so I just thought I'd add to my post with a few more symptoms that popped up within the past few days. I was at the hospital the day before last, making an appt, and all of a sudden had this wash of what tasted like blood in my mouth. I immediately checked my gums and around the inside, but no cuts or open wounds? Usually if my gums bleed, they won't stop before I have a chance to look. Still lightheaded, headachey, and waves of painful heartburn. I was sitting in math cla__s today (I'm a college student) and my stomach felt like I had done 50 situps right before cla__s. Odd because I'm not a working out type of girl so of course, I haven't done any situps. This feeling has come and gone all day. I'm 4 days away from expected AF..... about 10dpo. Any advice would be great!

Oh, and cramps! Normal pre-AF? They started around ovulation and haven't stopped. Not horrible, painful... more like a dull cramp that comes and goes.

it sounds like you could really be pregnant,if i were you i would test.

 

Naomi98 - February 21

I don't know what to tell you - the symptoms sound like pregnancy. I think you need to get a blood test. Or else just wait and see what happens when your next af is due. good luck!

Hey! I don't know what to tell you obviously non of us are doctors or anything but it sounds pretty textbook pregnancy to me. I guess the best thing is test again or wait it out a few more days!!! Best of luck to you! Make sure you keep us all updated! *~*baby dust*~*

 

LadyDi1285 - February 22

Thanks for your responses ladies! AF is scheduled to roll into town on Monday, I'll keep everyone posted! Baby dust to all! =)

LadyDi1285 - February 22

Thanks pod! What are your symptoms? Baby dust!

 

MegGriffin - February 22

LadyDi1285 - February 22

MegGriffin - February 22

Hey! Well... yeah bloating, mood swings, being tired, tender b___st, cramping that same dull cramping from time to time nothing really bad just noticeable. also yesterday i had the tiniest amount of spotting (pinky) and today I had a small amount of brown spotting. not every time i go to the bathroom but once or twice... just gotta wait out today and Saturday too. baby dust!!!! I will keep you updated!!! <3 .

Good morning ladies! Quick update: this morning I got up to use the RR and noticed the tinest bit of brown discharge when I wiped (TMI, I know) and it has me excited and confused at the same time! I know all about IB, which has me excited, but so soon before expected AF? She is scheduled to come Monday, but I have NEVER in my life had ANY kind of spotting BEFORE my period! Can I consider this a good sign (at.... 12dpo)? No more discharge came out after that, but I put a pantyliner on just in case. Also, Meg, I'm hoping AF doesn't show for you today! Let us know! Come on BFPs!! =)

 

pod - February 23

Meg- good luck to you, I hope you get your bfp. Lady- that sounds like a good sign, especially if af is due mon and you have never had any spotting before. Are you having other symptoms?

 

MegGriffin - February 23

Hey Ladies, Not this month unfortunatly Im wishing for all of you though! Same as you LadyDi I never had spotting before a period until I started TTC in December I had spotting and then January nothing and then this month the spotting again... I always hoped it was implantation bledding but not yet!! I really hope thats what it is for you LadyDi! Let us know! Good luck girls!!! Keep us updated!!!

 

LadyDi1285 - February 23

Meg- Boo for AF! Sending plenty of baby dust your way for next month though, keep your spirits up! The discharge I had this morning wasn't flowly per say, more like a mucusy blob... if that makes sense. It didn't even occur to me that it was blood when I first saw it, it was more brown and stringy and I haven't seen it since this morning. Pod- Well, I think I've pretty much convinced myself that most of my symptoms are in my head (thinking it's all too good to be true I guess), but a few things I know that are NOT in my head: painful heartburn, sore b___sts, fatigue, headaches, cramping, and getting washes of that blood-like taste in my mouth since the other day. How about you?
