I am on birth control. I take it consistently. I did however have a week in January where I accidentally missed 3 days, so I took 3 pills one day and 2 pills the next. I had some abnormal bleeding and then it as fine. I did have my regular cycle in February (always at the beginning of the month) However this month I have skipped my period when it was supposed to come (while I am on the inactive pills). I have taken like three or four pregnancy tests and they have all been negative. I am thinking about calling my doctor, but I am thinking it might also just be the result of stress. Could be pregnant even though I have had four negative tests? I haven't had morning sickness but I am experiencing strange feelings in my stomach, the urge to eat but not actual hunger, and fatique.... almost my breasts are tender and enlarged.

Still no period (it's time according to my pill pack) and I am having extreme gut wrenching pains in my abdominal region, could this be my body trying to straighten itself out? I can't afford to go to the doctor right now... and all my stress isn't helping this situation.

I was nearly 8 weeks along before a pregnancy test read positive with my first one. I have gone through symptoms similar to this back in November but I just needed a heavier dose of birth control, but this is the first time my breasts have been enlarged and every smell has bothered me. My fiancee cooked something really gross last week and he was like "ewww smell this" so I did and I threw up. I am about to throw up right now cause there are some very sweaty men somewhere in the building. My OB and my PCP both think I'm a crazy hypochondriac so I am almost afraid to make an appointment until a test says positive. It's just really scary... three pills missed and then a missed period!

Oh I just took my tests last week. Pretty much each day I worried about not having a period I took a test. Yesterday I had a really yucky feeling in my tummy like something was massaging me inside close to my ribs, lol what the heck could that be? AHH I'm such a freaking hypochondriac for sure.

Thanks for the advice ladies.

Hmmm...sounds like potentially your pills failed you. I know it is sometimes ok to miss a day and double up the next. But to miss 3 in a row, I would think you should wait an entire month back on the pill to ensure it is fully protecting you. I would wait a week and take another test with the first pee of the morning.

How long ago did you take your tests?

It could be stress but with all the symptoms you described, I would think that you're pregnant. I didn't have a positive pregnancy test until I was four weeks along.

Also, I had enlarged breast, increased appetite, a weird craving for raw pepperoni's, and one night of severe cramping. Morning sickness varies from woman to woman. Some have none, some have a little bit, and some have it all three trimesters.

I would set up an appointment with your OBGYN, and see if you could get a blood test done.
