What are the possibilities of me being pregnant?

I started birth control on March 11th. I started it on the Monday after my period had ended. My doctor told me that I would basically be unprotected and it would be safe to assume that it's my most fertile week if I were to have sex. Well, I ended up having sex on the 14th with my boyfriend and he didn't pull out. I've still been taking my birth control as told to do by my doctor. I haven't called or anything to make sure if I'm pregnant or not. I'm still waiting on my period, and it's a few days late. But it could also be different now because I have just started birth control and my body could be on a different cycle pattern now. Or.... I could be pregnant. I've been very tired lately, and I get bad headaches. Also, my breasts get sore every other day or every few days. Never usually consecutive days. Today it's pretty bad though. A couple days ago I also had discharge and a little brown spotting which I know could be the possibility of implantation bleeding. I've researched it a bit and based on the conception date I'd be about 5 weeks but based on my last menstrual cycle, I could be about 4 weeks. I'm not sure if any of this information is accurate. I took a pregnancy test a week ago and both came up negative right away. I'm not sure if it's because I'm not or if it's too early and if I should wait a couple weeks to retest. Also, I've heard that birth control can lower/cover up/hide your hcg hormone which is the hormone thats detected if you are pregnant. I'm not sure if there's a high chance that I probably am. And I'm also not sure if I should keep taking my birth control until I do get my period (if I do) or what I should really do. I really need some helpful advice. No jokes or judgment. Would really appreciate it!

Also, my ovulation dates were March 16 - 21 if that helps at all any.

Okay this thread will probably be locked. But none of us can tell you for sure. If what you experienced was implantation bleeding a hpt would pick up your pregnancy now. The bleeding could have also been your period as your body is still adjusting to the new hornones. And the pill has no effect on pregnancy tests. Just go see a doctor, a qualified one! If you are, this is a great place to find support, but until you know there's noting we can do..
