Post subject: How soon do you know you might be pregnant?
Hi there, I'm new to this forum!
About a week&half ago me and my long-term partner went away for a few days and I forgot to take my pill packet with me. I missed 2 pills, which i took when I got home. As we are in a long term relationship the idea of me getting pregnant isn't too scary, so we decided to use the withdrawal method. I am on Cerazette, and so I haven't had a period in months as a result.
I didn't worry too much at the time, but this last week or so since, I definetly haven't felt quite right. I've been feeling very tired, and I've been feeling a little constipated and needing to wee alot. I've also had tummy cramps, the feeling I used to get when my period was due. I've also had a lot more natural discharge than usual. I realise it would be very early to be getting pregnancy symptoms, and that it could be unrelated, but has anyone else experienced anything like this? Is there a possibility I could be experiencing early symptoms or is it more likely to be related to messing up my Pill? How soon should I do a pregnancy test?
Sorry if i sound a little confused! Thanks x

Post subject: clearblue? or Wait?
There are tests, (clearblue) that you can do 4 days before your period is due.. but to be honest as silly as it sounds just relax and wait for your period.
When you've got the idea in your head it can make little things seem big.. and its totally arghhhhh..! ive been there lol.
but honestly.. just give it time :] let me know x

Is it still too soon for me to test? Technically i'd be about 2&half weeks since conception now. I did a test 1 week ago which was negative, but im pretty sure this would of been too soon anyway (it wasnt a first response one or anything). My 'symptoms' arent as obvious now, which is making me think perhaps they were something to do with missing a few pills. I'm still getting tired and going to the loo a lot, and i've felt quite bloated etc. My friends keep telling me i'm being paranoid! Is it worth a test? Thanks xx

P.S. I can't use my periods as an indicator, as the pill I am on, cerazette, means i haven't had a period in months. Im worried that if i am pregnant i may be harming the baby by continuing to take my pill...
....equally i could be worrying about absolutely nothing!!! X

Just to let you know, don't think I am pregnant. I've done a couple of tests now, even though it's relatively early, and both have been negative. My 'symptoms' have gone too. Oh well! It's not like we planned a baby quite yet, but when I thought for that minute that I might be a little part of me really wished I was! My partner had got his hopes up too! Hopefully one day in the not so far away future when me and my partner are more financially secure and I have finished my studying good luck everyone else X
