Could I be pregnant? First let me say that I am on birth control pills (Ortho Tri-Cyclen) but haven't taken them regularily almost ever, at least since I began taking them about a year ago. I usually find myself taking two pills every other day, if that. I've practially skipped an entire month of pills this month, mainly because I was scared I could be pregnant and have read taking them while pregnant obviously is a definte no-no.I have been scared to take them...just in case. I started taking this month's cycle of pills a week late. Right now I am halfway through the dark blue pills, the color of the week before the placebo. But, like I said before, I started the pills a week late. I usually have my period pretty regularily, about every 28 days, minus the spotting which is my fault for not taking them religously. My last period came May 25th. Since then I've had unprotected sex 3 or 4 times, once around June 4th, June 19, and one/two time(s) inbetween (I can't recall the exact date(s)). I don't know if I am experiencing anything that would be labeled as true symptoms of pregnancy or just my mind playing tricks on me. I am craving different foods than usually, and have been eating a bit more than usual, and occasionally feel nauseous and a constant heachache which is unusal (I'm not sure that's a symptom) but I haven't experienced tender breasts or any other symptoms. I took a HPT Saturday June 21, which came up negative. Was this test too early? Should I take another one in a few days? When is the right time to take a HPT? Thanks for reading.
I'm sorry, I forgot to add on that I haven't experienced ANY spotting whatsoever since my last period ended which was around May 31st. Is this normal? Usually if I missed two pills I was guarenteed spotting.
