confused and worried
I have an irregular period, that comes and goes as it pleases and scares me quit a bit. I sometimes get breast tenderness and nausea along with some cramps, I'm always worried that i could be pregnant, but  am I just confusing my symptoms with PMS? I did regulate my periods with birch control pills for awhile, but with the weight gain I stopped using them...so now I get even more stressed so maybe stress is another reason for my irregularity? Any help would be most appreciated.

Stress can cause irregularity but if you have always had a problem with irregularity it isn't THE cause. Have your drs ruled out PCOS, vitamin deficiencies, or thyroid problems? If they haven't, perhaps you should ask your dr about getting tested for them. Make sure you ask about Free t3 and t4 testing as well as the standard TSH as they tend to be more reliable at showing what the thyroid is doing.

Have you only tried one form of birth control? There are tons of different forms so maybe another won't effect your weight.
