hi ladies!

been back on the pill for about 2 months now. lately i have felt awful. never hungry, and if i am, the only food i can eat is KFC chips. feeling very tired, headaches, TMI - vagina twinges/tummy twinges, bloated, VERY emotional, feeling very lazy, sensitive nipples, sore boobs, not interested in doing anything. i didn't think much of it because i only had my period about 2 weeks ago... but maybe it wasn't my period? i have no idea....

i tested about 5 days after my period just because i'm a POAS addict and it was stark white BFN. tonight i had enough of feeling like crap so i went to the chemist and bought more FRERs.

line came up straight away but it's VERY faint, but it's pink. at first fiance couldn't see it, but he can now. has this happened to anyone before?? getting pregnant while on the pill? i'm so confused.

should i take the pill tonight or skip it? i will take a test with FMU tomorrow and update you all!

opinions appreciated original.gif

Well I can't see anything there.  Either negative or dodgy pics

i can't see anything either OP, but you can fall pregnant on the pill (see my sig, the eldest was conceived on Levlen)

Sorry OP, I cannot see a line either.

I have never gotten pregnant while on the pill.  I always found it a very reliable form of contraception.

Have you been taking your pill everyday or have you accidentally skipped a few and that is why you tested originally?

I think if you are TTC it would be best to just stop it completely and see what happens.

I cant see any lines, but that doesnt mean they arent there. I got pregnant this time whilst on the pill. Dont take it again till you confirm with your dr.I should add that I was not the most responsible of pill takers!

I dont see anything either sorry. Whats making you a POAS aholic - if you are on the pill? If you're TTC get yourself off the pill and pronto. If not i highly recommend getting something more like a Mirena, where you can get it put in and not worry for years.

I cant see anything.

If taken correctly the pill is a very reliable form of contraception.  Do you have a reason why you suspect your pregnant (apart from feeling sick)?  Have you missed pill(s), medication, vomitting/diarrhoea?

I see a very faint line on the 1st pic but nothing on the 2nd. THB I think it's negative. If you think you are pregnant you need to see a GP not EB.

All the symptoms you're experiencing could easily be a side effect from the pill.

I can see a very faint line on the top one. Why are you a poas addict while on the pill?!

I'd suspect that if you are pregnant it is either very early or it hasn't implanted properly (that would be my guess) & it will go on to be a chemical pregnancy.

Are you taking the pill every day as directed? It's very reliable if you do!

I can see the faintest of lines in the first one.

Sorry OP, In those pics I can't see a pink line. I'd test again in 2 days time.

BUT i dont see any lines on your test sad.gif sorry.

Have you been on any other medication that may have interfered with the pill? I think antibiotics make it ineffective.

I can't see a second line in either pic.

So are you ttc or wanting to prevent pregnancy? I'm confused as you are upset by the negative but were on the pill?

If you are wanting to get pregnant stop taking the pill lol!
