To Worry Or Not To

I am not sure what to think so I would really appreciate any advice. I on the second month of the pill. I missed a couple at the beginning - and had unprotected s_x around then. I was really good about taking the pill the rest of the month. I spotted brown for 4 days a week before my period was due - which was yesterday and so far nothing. I have been mildly cramping, tired, heavy br___ts and eating all the time. please help.

it could be the pill since it is only your second month on it.

You can always take a test, if you want to be absolutely sure. When I was on the pill, my period sometimes wouldn't start until the fourth or fifth day of period pills.

you could be pg but the brown could be just from messing the pills up..i would test and see what happens, but i think you are okay the signs you are talking about can also be PMS or af coming? good luck

thanks to all of you for your help. i ended up getting a light brown period late last night. it's not as heavy as normal and we'll see how long it lasts. it doesnt feel like a normal period if that makes any sense.... but i am sure y'all are right and it's probably due to the pill. i really dislike the pill but i have to be on it - i miscarried months ago fairly early on and it messed up my cycle badly so the doctors are trying to regulate me again.

when you first start the pill, you might get spotting between periods. But you did have s_x, so testing was a good idea :) best wishes

well i took a test and it came back negative. my question to those of you who have ever been on BC pills - how light to they make your periods? mine normally are really heavy and last for 6-7 days - this one was super light and only lasted 3. is this normal? i am still sleeping all the time, my back hurts and i get random headaches in the middle of the night.
