Are the tests wrong ?
TK_994 posted:
Since Fall of 2012 I have been on birth control . Since then I have graduated high school and gone to college . During my winter break I was switched to a generic brand birth control due to insurance reasons and started my new prescription January 2013 . February 2013 I did not receive my period and took a store-bought pregnancy test which came up negative . A few days ago I finished my birth control pack for March 2013 and still did not receive my period . During that time I took another pregnancy test (from the same pack) and it also came back negative . I would like to think I am imagining some of the symptoms but I have experienced tiredness, nausea (without throwing up), aversion to smells, mood swings, dizziness, weight gain, back pains and slight cramping . Is it possible that the tests could have been wrong ? Or is this the new BC pill I am on ?

It could be the new pill you are on. Skipping periods while on the pill is common but missing two in a row isn't. I'd call your doctor and see what they say.
