Wasn't TTC. Can changing BC pills cause preg symptoms???


Okay. So. Here's my tale. Pull up a chair! OH, you're already on one? Perfect!

I am now on week three of my pill pack. I ended up being 4 days late starting it because the pharmacy LOST MY PRESCRIPTION. I do not have a doctor anymore as she retired but thankfully I found a script written by another doctor for a BC pill with the same hormones as my old one, but a different brand name.

well 4 days in to the pack i forgot a pill. And hubby and I had just had sex 2 times the day before. I've been getting cramps very randomly ever since and last night I had to stop having sex as my cervix hurt so bad. I also woke up with nausea this morning.

I can;t test for another week but I'm just wondering.. should I be concerned??? Or as I've read online, changing BC pills can cause some weird uterus stuff.. BUT.... BUT... Since it's the exact same hormonal bc *different brand name* would that even apply??????

*GULP*

The symptoms you are having are most likely not pregnancy related as those would only appear 5-10 days after ovulation

I might have been ovulating though, I read you ovulate 10 days after your period, well 10-14 days???


So, period started the 11th, finished by 13th (yes my periods are that short lol) and started the next pill pack on the 17th in the evening.

Then we had intercourse twice on the 21st and 22nd within 14 hours of each other, and I missed my pill on the 23rd. (10 days after my period) We then used contraception after the missed pill.

So by that I *THINK* I might have actually been ovulating right around when I missed my pill. I do hope I'm wrong, so I hope you are right Tinker!!

Its possible- definately! Even if it has the same hormones- it may have diff amounts. Then again- its also poss that you did conceive. I've got 3 kids- all of whom were conceived on the pill. Happy accidents. If you are due in a week- it IS early to test- but stranger things than an early BFP have happened.

Oh dear. I am actually thinking of getting off the pill for good as I had an unexpected pregnancy last year (I did NOT miss ANY pills) but unfortunately it ended in a MC I would definitely not be upset to be pregnant. Just very unexpected.

I will let you know what the test say! I might take one tomorrow morning, it is just a dollar store one but might as well give it a shot.


And that is what I thought!! That they might have different AMOUNTS of hormones. Glad I was not too off base with that.

I just wasted a $1,25 because I am impatient. Took a test, mid day, over a week before my period starts. Obviously it was negative. My friend was laughing at me- not sure WHAT I expected.

Hmm apparently the pill I WAS on and the pill I am now on have the same exact stuff and should be the precise same amounts in each. So maybe the symptoms I've been having aren't from that. I keep getting sporadic cramps in my left and sometimes right side. Feel like typical period cramps but not as painful.

I dunno. I didn't realize I was pregnant last time until I was way over 8 weeks because I was using the pill perfectly and had no reason to think I was preggo. So I have nothing to compare this to.
