Not sure where to post this. I am happily married with a wonderfull DD and a very small two bedroomed house and we are very tight financially. We both work and DD attends nursery 4 days a week. This is all great no complaints, well winning the lottery would be nice .
I am on the pill, micronor i think, I haven't missed one but cannot recall my last period. I am tired today didn't sleep due to DD coughing all night and DH is grumpy due to over working.I am worried we can't afford another I keep doing the maths and I know everyone says you manage but it really would be a case of no food on the table or missing bill payments and we don't want that for ourselves or DD.
I should just get a test and see but I actually feel a bit sick thinking about it. The bottom line is I can't afford to be pregnant, but if I could be I would love another. Sometimes life sucks a bit. I don't want to be pregnant and have to terminate. I know this is controversial and everyone TTC is casting a scowl my way but I don't believe in living off benefits. I am ranting now as I don't want to talk out load to anyone about this.
The progesterone only pill can often cause menstrual irregularities, such as irregular bleeding or missed periods. These can be annoying, but tend to settle down after a while. If you have continued problems with irregular bleeding you should talk to your doctor. If you are worried that you could be pregnant because you have not had a period, you should ask your doctor or nurse for advice or do a pregnancy test. However, if you took all your pills correctly and you didn't have an upset stomach or take any other medicines which might affect the POP (see end of factsheet), then it is unlikely you are pregnant.
Take a test. Hope you get the answer you are after. If it comes negative is there any chance you can swap your contraception to something like the coil to give you more confidence in it? Good luck hope you are ok and your DD is feeling better
