Ok, so I've been on the birth control patch about 6 months or longer now. This month I missed my 3rd week patch bc it wasn't in the box. Not sure if my kids got into it or it just wasn't there? Anyway so I had my period a week early I'm guessing bc of not having the patch on. It was heavy a couple days very crampy then spotting, It stopped and returned to spotting a day later after having sex. I've been very nauseous, headaches, tired, lower back pain, a little crampy. I had 3 positive tests & they were very light and then a negative result...Is it too early to tell or maybe a chemical pregnancy??Or just from getting off schedule with the patch??

If you knew your BC method was messed up, why did you have unprotected sex? You should use condoms until you get back on schedule. The package should say how long to use a back-up method if you deviate from the directed dosage. Usually ovulation occurs 2 weeks before your period, but since you were inconsistent with the patch, who knows what your body would have done. The symptoms you had could be from the change to your birth control, but who knows.

Did you follow the directions on the home tests? There's a specific time window where the results are supposed to be accurate. If you wait longer before you look at it, the test could give a false reading. But, generally if there is any positive result during the correct time frame, even a light line, then it's a positive result. if you're not getting clear readings from the home tests, go see a doctor to have a blood test done.
