I am on cerazette and have been for years. Since last Friday evening I've had weird symptoms. I got really bad period type pains which woke me up, and I just assumed my period was on the way. However, I haven't had any bleeding or spotting. I still keep getting random waves of cramps; most nights they wake me up.
I am also getting random waves of nausea once or twice a day. My boobs are sore too and the right boob is a bit veiny (but I get sore boobs before my period usually)
Since yesterday I have felt like I have a cold and am snotty and tired. I went to the hairdressers yesterday and was sweating just sitting there!
I have a reduced appetite; this morning I can't face breakfast and have just had a pack of vegetable crisps so far. I feel a bit sick just writing this too haha.
I am bloated even in the morning when I usually have a flat-ish tummy, but I have IBS so I can randomly bloat up sometimes!
I took a test on Monday; negative. I mentioned it to my doctor on Tuesday and she said to re-test again in about a week just in case.
I really can't tell if my period is on the way or if I am pregnant! And ironically I think the anxiety/uncertainty about it all is making me feel more ill haha. Any thoughts/advice?
thank you lovely. Unfortunately I don't get regular periods so I have no idea when I'm due. The only differences are I've never had period pains wake me up without bleeding, and I don't usually get waves of nausea on my period. Also, I usually want to eat more, not less! So far I've managed scrambled eggs, a banana and a pack of veggie crisps, normally I'd be hungry for lunch by now lol!
That's exactly how I was before i found out I was pregnant. Especially the food aversions and waves of nausea! My boobs hurt way more than than they would on a normal period too. I would do as the doc says and test in a week.
I'd get a first response early detection test. My cycles were long (35-40 days) and I never really knew when I was due to come on, took a first response test (roughly around the time I thought I might be due) and got a definite positive. A cheap test the same day was so faint I could barely see it. Good luck!! x
To be fair I didn't start feeling sick until I approached my 4th week but everyone's different. I'd do what your doctor said and try and give it another week before you test again, and use a sensitive type. Hope you get the result you're hoping for x
re-tested this morning, negative. Thinking about it my period doesn't usually come until the end of the month (if it does turn up) but it's so hard to tell on cerazette...should i wait until then to test again?
Nausea and breast tenderness are side effects of cerazette so I would maybe take a sensitive test on Monday as planned and if that's negative go back to your doctor. It seems fairly common that even if a certain pill agrees with you at first after a while it might not so if you're not pregnant you might need to switch to a different one or have a break from it.
This seems unlikely, especially as I don't know how old you are, but is there any chance at all you could be menopausal?
