Post subject: hi
There might be a possibility that you could be pregnant but give it some time. I used to suffer from all these symptoms when i was due for a period before i fell pregnant! even though i was on the pill, i used to spot inbetween, the cramps could just be period pain, and yes-i used to get extremely emotional, and sore breasts.
You could do a pregnancy test to put your mind at ease, but remember, if you are pregnant, it might be too early to tell yet! if i was in your position i would wait until my period is a week overdue( if you do not come on-that is) and then do a test or see a doctor.
Good luck, Sorry if i haven't been much help. xxxxx

I would strongly advise getting yourself to a doctor. If you are pregnant you should not be taking the pill anymore. A lot of women experience bleeding early in a pregnancy but the cramps make me think that you need to see your doctor. Explain to them exactly what you have said on here. It may just be that because you missed two pills your period started to come but hasn't come fully because you started taking your pills again... please see a doctor though

Hi Holly. It sounds like you could be pregnant, especially if you do not usually get these symptoms. The best way to check you are pregnant if you do not want to wait for your normal period date would be to ask the doctor for a hormone blood test which can tell you early whether you are pregnant as it is important to not be taking the pill whilst pregnant. Good luck.
