Hello ladies,
Okay well ill give you a quick run down. My partner and I are not trying for kids for at least another year or so, and I have been on the pill for a little over three years now. I do sometimes miss a day or forget to take it on the correct time, but I do take it as soon as possible.

Anyway, lately I have been experiencing some pregnancy symptoms such as, going to the toilet more often, fatigue, and tired of the time and comes so randomly as well, I will had barely done anything and feel like I have no energy and have the need to rest. I have adapted a great sense of smell, and am experiencing like slight burps kinda more so a hiccup but a little burp. I'm a bit more gassier as well and I am to a lady to be gassy. Headaches, constipation (sorry for that) and yeah lower back pains etc. and sometimes cramps, also every time I get up or get out the car I get a little dizzy and light headed. I haven't experienced this before so I do not understand.
When I was expecting my period , it did not come, instead I had spotting, it was barely anything, and colour was brown , and I didn't understand why this was? And so I googled into it , and came up with "Implantation bleeding" .. Spotting was going on varying from brown to a pinky red colour and was so light that i wouldn't even have to wear a panty liner. This all started on a Friday and lasted till the Monday after my partner and I had intercourse and it got a little heavier , but still not enough blood for a period. Not at all. Blood still varies from a light brown discharge colour to a light pinky red colour till today, so far has been 6 days. I took a pregnancy test and blood test at the doctors two days ago and both came out negative.
My curiosity lands on, could I be pregnant still? Because if this is implantation bleeding, which I'm starting to doubt, do I need to take the pregnancy test a few days after it stops? And or what am I Going through? Could this be a sign for miscarriage? :'(

Please ladies if you have any advice , it would most keep me at ease.
Thank you

You could be, or maybe you're not.

The only way to know is to buy a pregnancy test & pee on it! Or head to the doctor for a blood test.

Good luck.

The OP has done a HPT and had a blood test, both negative...

OP, if you think you could be pregnant still, you should stop taking the pill. I'd say if you're only just implanting it would be far too early to experience all of those symptoms though.

Sorry you're going through this OP.  

I would suggest.... give it another day or so and if you're still feeling really unwell go back to the Dr for another blood test.  If it was implantation and an early loss your hormones will be a bit out of whack perhaps causing some of these symptoms.

In the meantime, look after yourself as if you were pregnant.

Good luck OP!!!

Also OP if you are not taking your pill regularly this could affect your cycle. You may have had a regular period but because you missed a few your hormones were out of whack and may have been lighter than normal. I know when I was on the pill I had a few weird periods but I wasn't pregnant.
Good luck!

For me I had no real pregnancy symptoms other than having to pee as often as my husband and feeling run down and tired. I just got back from a trip skiing in NZ and just put it down to fatigue from the travelling and skiing.

Oh thank you,

I will keep it easy for the rest of the month and just wait for my next period, if it doesn't come then ill do the HPT, if it does I think it would have been the pill.

Thank you
