I've been taking Microgestin Fe 1/20 since May (Sunday starter). I've never experienced anything amiss with my cycle or experienced any side effects till now, and I'm kind of worried because they echo early pregnancy symptoms. Also should mention that I don't miss any pills and take them at the same time each day, although there were a few times in my first month or two where I did forget and ended up taking them a few hours later.
I last had sex on August 26. My guy always uses condoms but I worry about things like the condoms breaking and that kind of stuff. It likely hasn't happened, but who knows? While on the pill, I've been getting my period at around the 4th-6th each month but for this month, it was reaaaaallly light, as in I only needed about two pads for that entire timeframe and it only last three days (It usually last about 5-6 days). A few days later, I also noticed a white vaginal discharge, which took me by surprise. I read that this could've been implantation bleeding and panicked and took an HPT on the 12th, but it came out negative. Since the beginning of this week though, I've been experiencing a lot of weird symptoms, notably abdominal/lower back cramping, nausea, bloating, fatigue, etc. I'm always hungry, bloated, tired, etc. so some of those aren't really of concern to me, but the cramping has been particularly worrisome. It feels like I'm having milder cramps than I would have had during my period and it's not really painful, just uncomfortable. It just feels like something weird is going on down there. :/ I really don't want to believe I'm pregnant and I want to take another test to make sure, but I'm not sure if I should do it now or wait to see what happens next month. I'm absolutely freaking out that my birth control failed on me or that me or my guy did something wrong. If I am simply experiencing side effects, why would it happen in my fourth month?
