Pregnant or effects of stopping and restarting pills?
An_249280 posted:
After my period, i took my pills as usual, then stoped after taking 5 BCPs. I had withdrawal bleeding from 5-8 nov and had unprotected sex (he always pulled out) thrice. On 8th, 16th, and dec 1st. If i were to follow my regular cycle "on d pill", i am 12 days late now, (dec 5). I took a HPT on 2nd and it was ngative, so i started taking BCPs again on 3rd. I still dont have my period, but ive been having a little brown spotting spotting since yesterday,cramps, and i always feel bloated after eatinf and a little nauseous. Could i be pregnant or are my hormones are just unstable?

I think it's just the effects of stopping then restarting birth control.
