Hello everyone! I just joined yesterday! I have been reading about people who have similar cases like I am having and I just need to know if it is in my head or could I really possibly be pregnant!?

 

Okay, so I am 23, I took Birth Control from the time I was 18 and I ended it in March of this year. I had normal cycles to the end of March when I quit taking it. My boyfriend and I are not trying to get pregnant, but we are not preventing it either. Although we would both be ECSTATIC if we did get pregnant! We use the pull out method. (I know this is not always 100% safe, I know you can still get preggers from pre cum, or not pulling out fast enough)

 

Anyway I had normal periods all the way to March. April I did not have a period and took several HPT's and they were all BFN's! I had one that had a faint line, but it was after the 10 minute wait. I went to my OBGYN and had blood work done and it came back BFN! My OBGYN told me my body can take up to a year to adjust being off BC (birth control) He recommended I did not get back on BC if we plan on having a baby, because it takes longer to get pregnant, after quitting BC. He told me if I did not have a period for 3 months after the visit in April to come back and he would give me something to start my period. 

 

I had a light period on May 14-17. My normal periods before this when I was on BC came around the 2nd of the month and last 5-7 days. That was my normal period, so the one I had in May, was a light period. So anyway my boyfriend and I are very sexually active & have been using the pull out method since. June came and NO AF. July came and NO AF. I did more than several HPT's in June and all were BFN only one FAINT BFP or EVAP line out of all the tests. I figured it was EVAP and threw it away. July came and took several HPT's again and still NO AF and all BFN! Still had one FAINT BFP or EVAP. ( I am sure they were EVAP, because it was AFTER 2 hours!) I called my OBGYN and told him what was going on and he called in Medroxyprogesterone to my pharmacy. He told me to start it if I do not have a period in August. He said it will make me start my period and DO NOT have sex on it. ( I am scared to start this medicine bc what if I am preggers and it causes miscarriage)

 

Anyway, we are finally in August and so far NO AF! But I have the cramping that I would get before AF. I had these cramps in June & July too! It feels like I am going to start but never did, and still have not started! I am tired all the time & get frequent headaches & my lower back hurts all the time!! I started charting my BBT on July 28 and it started at 97.9 then went up to 98.4 and yesterday it was 99.6. 

 

Anyway, I need advice! Has this ever happened to anyone?! Is there a chance I could BE PREGNANT!? 

 

I want this SO BAD!! My mom said she did not get a BFP till she was 3 months preggers with me! She said her HCG levels were low. 

 

Advice, please?!

 

Thank you!!!!

It's hard to tell. Our bodies can act up after quitting birth control. But at the same time you could be pregnant. Small percentage of women don't get a BFP. But you would know if you took the blood test. I think your body might be messed up at the moment, trying to adjust. Have you thought about taking Vitex? It is natural and safe. It may or may not help but wouldn't hurt your body or the chances of getting pregnant. Good luck hon! :)

Medroxyprogesterone will not cause a miscarriage if you are pregnant.

I'm sorry for your loss, but that is not the medication causing a miscarriage. You had already miscarried- you just hadn't passed the fetus.

i need help too. my period is 2 weeks late, i usually have my period on 34 days. now it's 47 days and still no period, i took two home exams on different days, both showed negative results. today i took a blood test and got less than 5 which means negative. i have sore breasts, i pee every two hours. btw i just had once sex the last month exactly 32 days ago, so i think that the tests should be accurate by now. ps. my partner didnt even ijaculated inside me. so the chances to get pregnant i guess are really very rare, both home and blood tests came negative. still im not having my period. i have so many symptoms. my doctor says im not pregnant although i still feel like i am. im not taking any pills or any kind of medicine. really i need to know whats happening with me as its driving me crazy??
