Okay so I have been on the birth control combination pill for about 6 months now and never had a problem. I have a new boyfriend I have been with for over 2 months and we have had s_x a few times using a condom. But I am now a day late and my breats are really tender and sore right now. I have had this happen before but way before I ever started taking the pill. Could this be a symptom of pregnancy or just a hormonal imbalance brought on by the pill?

I would say that if your using the pill and condoms then your chances of this being a pregnancy related symptom are very slim. I would think that this is a result of the pill and maybe a bit of stress from worrying about your s_xual encounters. I think you should be on the safe side. A period can also bring sore b___bs since you've said you've had this before then thats what i bet my money on. Take a test in a couple of days if still a no show period, if its negative and no period within the next week. Consult your doc. Goodluck.

One day late is not considered abnormal. You took the necessary steps to protect yourself through condoms and BC. I also doubt stress was a factor in delaying your cycles seeing that you dont ovulate when your on BC. Have you missed any pills or delayed taking them? In any case your chances of pregnancy are slim to 0!

I know its not abnormal but thats not whats got me scared its the really bad tenderness and the really bad mood swings like I know both of those are normal pms but I havent had pms like that in almost a year and this month I have been real good on remembering my pill I was only 3 hours late taking it one time and that was the last day of the pills with hormones

Just because you are on the pill it doesn;t mean you wont have PMS symptoms. You def. will. I doubt you are pregnant.Taking the pill one time 3 hours late is highly unlikely to get you pregnant. Take a test to make sure but don't be surprised if it's BFN!

Yes the pill does supress ovulation but that isn't always 100 precent. Sometimes an egg can slip through if you didn't take the pill at the same time or everyday. Even though it is highly unlikly that you would be pregnant because you only missed taking the pill from its original time and still remembered to take it. It could have played a factor in the period being a bit late but Since you used a condom i'm almost certain that you aren't pregnant. Stress at any time during your period can play a factor, also the foods you eat and your excersize schedule can change the period by even a couple of days. Constipation can also effect y our period. I would say that you can still have PMS signs because even though your not having a normal cycle (ovulation) your still putting hormones in your body and stopping them around your period. Mood swings can be a side effect of the pill so its not unlikly that your having this effect you. Boob tenderness since you said yu've had it before you went on the pill i would a__sume is just another pms sign. Just take a test but i think your def not preggo. Just keep using condoms as a form of backup to the pill and you should be fine =)

yeah you're right its 99% effective when taken correctly. So yeah she could be that 1% out of the many, many millions who take and never get pregnant.

The pill is 92-99.7 % effective.

I appreciate everything and yeah I got what seems to be a period now got it earlier today it seems normal but 2 days late so Im thinking Im good lol tenderness isnt as bad anymore too Im kinda laughing at myself now for getting so freaked out so soon but being so late with so much pms has never happened before while Ive been on the pill or before the pill before the pill I got it every 26 days usually maybe 25-27 but on the pill I was usually 27-28 and like I used to be not so good with my pill Id take it late and miss days but this month I was so careful about it maybe that change is what caused this I dont know Im going to continue to be real careful from now on anyways its to soon for me to be having a child oh and btw it depends on what pill your taking theres 2 kinds the one is 4-6% chance and the other is 1-2% chance they have different hormones in them Im on the 1-2% one right now Ive known I was good but I freaked out when I was late and was having symptom like pms

Glad everything worked out. Yeah there are tons of different kinds of pills. Lol i think theres three. I just took a general percentage. Lol. Glad things turned out alright. Goodluck!!

The pill IS 99% effective WHEN TAKEN CORRECTLY. Not sure where you got that number but it's hilarious.

 

PreciousBaby19 - November 24

Lol Emma. I got the number from a website. that is shows each pill and how effective they are. I took their generalization for all the pills since i didn't know which kind she was using. And yes its effective most when taken correctly.

When I was on the pill I never got pregnant and I was on it for 3 yrs. Take it every day at the same time. My period was always different while on the pill, it was a week early, a week late, I'd have a period then 5 days later I would have a 3 day period even. Even when it came to my fake pills, my period would not come till they were OVER sometimes. Take it every day at the same times, and there are less chances of getting pregnant. Miss one day? take two the next. Etc. Read the instructions.

Remember Emma, just because you've taken the pill doesn't mean you know everything about it... Now, why don't you leave these young girls alone and come pick on someone your own age. Come to grandma..
