I am 26 yrs. old and married. I went off birth control about 3 weeks ago to get my body regulated (per the doctor) again. We were not really trying to concieve, but not a problem if it ended up that way. we have has unprotected sex 4-6 times during this time. other times with a condom. the last week or so I have noticed my nipples are erect and sore (not bad, just irritating, kind of tingling feeling to the touch), I have had watery vaginal discharge, no increase in appetite. Some morning I feel a bit nasaus after having a drink of water (i dont eat breakfast). but this isn't daily. I few smells make me feel nasueus, but subsides quickly. I have lower back aches occasionally, not constant. I have had very mild cramping for a couple hours for just a few days, that has gone now. could this be a side effect of going off the pills? or possible pregnancy? I tested once, it was negative. I dont know when to expect my period as i was irregular before the pills and don't know when I will get it now that I am off, doc said it may not come as scheduled. I cant get a doc. appt for a couple weeks.
You're probably just readjusting to being off the pill. It took more than four weeks for my first period after the pill, and then they ranged from 29-38 day cycles for six months, and finally went to 29-30 day cycles. It can take a while for your body to get used to not being on the pill. I would wait at least 19 days after the last time you had unprotected sex before you test again. Most home pregnancy tests will say that in the instructions as well.
