Guess I Belong Here?? Missed pill, no bleed!


Hello,

It's been a while since I posted and tbh not sure I belong here.

My little boy is nearly 9 months old and since I stopped Bfing I've been on Yasmin birth control pill.

Last Saturday I forgot to take the last pill in my pack and ended up taking it 24hrs late. My partner and I dtd on monday night, first time in a while as we've still not properly got back into the swing of things following bubbas arrival - i know i know! It's now Friday and I've had no withdrawal bleed as usual, normally happens tues/wed.

I've looked at the instructions in my pill packet and it says that the first and last pills are the worst ones to miss and I'm seriously wondering if I might be pregnant?! I would be over the moon obviously although it would put some financial strain on us. Not sure how I'll tell my partner...Anyway I'm jumping the gun a little.

My question is, when would be the earliest I could test in this scenario? Two weeks time? If I did ovulate I've no idea when?

No doubt now I've written this post AF will arrive and I know I will be a bit gutted - time to have that chat about baby number 3 I think, 35 in a couple of months and I think my clock is ticking.

Thanks for listening - Hannah X

Would really appreciate it if someone could help di-sect this with me.

I'm thinking that if I am pregnant I most probably ovulated on the Saturday which would make me 7dpo. So since I wouldn't have had a regular AF do you think I can test 10-12dpo? Its driving me nuts.

Symptoms wise, I've only had slight nausea this morning, dizzyness and hot flushes. Today I had a couple of mild cramps and one or two bits of spotting.

I know this wasn't meant to happen just yet, but I'll be gutted now if i'm not.

P.S When me and my partner decided to try last time, I finished my pill (had been on it 10 years so thought it would take a while), had my withdrawal bleed, We were going to begin trying properly after I'd been on holiday for 10 days (without my partner) but as it turned out we DTD once before I went and got back to a bfp!!

What do you think?

Thanks

It's not impossible that you're pregnant, however, since Yasmin has both the hormones in it USUALLY one missed pill won't throw you off. I'm not sure how it works exactly though, so if I were you I'd call my doctor and discuss it with him. If there's a possibility you might be pregnant, he might want you to stay off the pill till you know for sure, so he'll be able to give you a better answer.

Hi Spotless Mind :-)

Yes I'm due to start taking my pill again tomorrow but obviously unless I get my bleed I won't take it. Do you think I might be able to test on Monday?

I've just got a 'funny feeling'....but you know how it is, you convince yourself that you are...because its what you want.

Where are you up to in the TWW? X

I'd say test two weeks after dtd. If bfn and no af, test a couple days after that. I'm kind of in the same boat as I haven't had my first pp af yet. I'm 10dpo according to the way I suggested.

I'm testing tomorrow morning btw, because I got my bfp with dd at 11 dpo. I won't be bummed if it's bfn because it's still early though. Go ahead and test earlier if you know it won't bug you!

Hi IllySilly,

Thanks for your response. It's so hard to know where I'm at, it's nice to know someone is in the same boat. I think that's probably best to wait until 27th to test....it's gonna be a long wait! I'll probs end up testing sooner if AF still isn't here. I'll be 10dpo on Monday (if i O'd when i think) but only 7 since DTD so probably not likely to get a bfp.

I keep doing rediculous things like going to the toilet a million times a day to check for AF!! I really did feel nauseaous this morning but strangely I never had that with either of my other two pregnancies! Can that happen you think? Or is my brain just searching for symptoms?

How exciting that you're testing tomorrow, let me know how you get on and good luck!

You think you O'd the day you forgot to take the pill if you'll be 10 DPO Monday, right? Some ladies get a BFP that early, but if you're easily dissappointed by negative tests you're probably better off waiting until next Friday.

I'm supposed to be waiting to test, but been testing since 6DPO (am 11DPO today). Not even a slight BFP yet for me, and today's and yesterday's tests really got me down in the dumps so I'm going to try to wait till Monday to test again. We'll see how that goes, though.

Awww Hun, it's still very early days isn't it - still lots of chance yet. Have you had any symptoms at all?

Thanks I might try with a fr on Monday if AF not here...knowing my luck she'll turn up tomorrow. But on writing that I realize I've had lots of good fortune in the last couple of years so maybe the trend will continue.

We could wait till Monday together if you like? Best chance is with first morning urine so as long as you get past that without testing tomorrow you've got another day under your belt and same again Sunday. Monday will be here before you know it. Xxx
