Missy - January 9

Ok, I am on the patch and have been for 2 months now. My last period was on the 15th of December. Had s_x on the 28th, he pulled out. I got very sick on the 31st (after a night of drinking but it was 10 times worse then if ever has been), and then I was sick all the next day. A couple days after that I started having cramps (felt different then period cramps). I have also had a lot of nausea lately and I heard that a decrease in s_x drive could also be a sign and I have had that. I am sorry this is so long but I am only 21 and was wondering if this all meant that there is a good chance that I am pregnant, or could the nausea just be a side effect of the patch? (cause I had it last month but not as bad and I was not pregnant) I am just looking at what to do!? PLEASE HELP ANYONE!! The nausea is normally when I am hungry but not always.

Missy, these questions on malfunctions of hormonal contraception are difficult to answer precisely because the hormones also produce signs. You did have s_x on the most fertile day of the month, but there is no indication that you failed in your patch routine. The only pregnancy-related sign you have is nausea and I would expect at least a few others if you were pg. I would go to the web site of the pill manufacturer (or read the flyer tht comes with the patch)and look up side effects. That might set your mind at ease. It might also make you decide on an alternate form of b/c.

I was on the patch also, and was sick for a month. I called the doctor and she told me it was the side effects from the patch.
