Been on the pill for 8 years. Last AF was very late in the 7 day break and very light (mainly brownish goo - sorry if this is TMI!). On this month's 7 day break and on day 4 of 7 with no sign of AF. Unfortunately, I have had no action from DP in 5 weeks, so therefore cannot have conceived since last 7 day break. But my mind is now thinking well if the last AF was late and very light then perhaps I am pg?
If I am worried and want to test to find out, when should I test and wouldn't it say I am pg as the pill makes the body pretend to be pg anyway?
Oh the confusion - hence my plea to experienced MNers!
Will be due to start next pill packet on Saturday morning so if no AF by then I'll be wandering to Boots for a test.... eek
Thanks! I think I will hold out the remainder of the week. But even so, would wonder how on earth I could be pg as have never missed a pill. Guess someone has to make up that 0.1% when they say the pill is 99.9% effective
I would test immediately. Based on the info it sounds like if you are, you have been for a few weeks do a test will be positive. Obviously the pill is not totally effective (think 99% so 1 in 100 women who take it perfectly get pg). It's possible you were already pg when you had the light bleed. This is quite common with ladies on the pill, they can be pg for months not realising she is because you often have withdrawal bleeding each month regardless (I read about this in a magazine recently!). The pill does not create hcg which is what a hpt tests for. So test and put yourself out of the misery!
Hate to be brutal but you're either pregnant or you're not by now (let's face it if you are you're at least 6 weeks so a test will clearly show it!). Do a test!! You don't need to wait. Poundland do two for a quid if it's the cost you're worried about! Tesco.do one for 3 quid. You font need to spend a tenner on a fancy digital one. Off you pop! Btw if you're not pg, book yourself am appt with GP cos something isn't right and you need to know what's going on.
Not a go at the OP at all, but I remember those happy days of being on the pill and wondering if I was somehow pregnant anyway... now I spend my time taking my temperature, obsessively examining my cervical fluid, weeing on expensive sticks, having sex whether either us of want to or not and staring at my chart on Fertility Friend for hours and not so much as a sniff of a BFP...
