Is it just me?


Hi there!

The main reason I joined this forum is to vent a little frustration as I'm wtt and probably will be for a while. But the second reason is something I'm a little embarrassed about and I'm not sure if it's just me :S

I am on microgynon and have been for 5 years with no problems but I think my subconscious is overriding all rational thought!! I'm quite young (20) but every month I seem to be having mild hysterical pregnancies. I get bloated, back pain, cramping, taste changes etc and in the last couple of months AF has been late by a few days so I only bled for a day before having to start the next packet (they've been on the dot the whole 5 years I've been on it until now).

It's driving me and my OH mental!

It's horrible

I just feel so pregnant and I dream about it and just arrgh! Drives me up the wall. The OH has to hear about it all as well and I can sense he's getting a bit tired of it.

I'm also getting tired spending money on tests just to be disappointed every time when I see a BFN

except for the taste changes, those are all just period symptoms - which happen to also be pregnancy symptoms!

the lateness is probably from stress but the other stuff i'd just try to go with and not worry about experiencing those, as i know i have bloating, back pain, cramping - as well as breast soreness, etc. - with every period !!

i remember i used to get crazy paranoid with all this stuff when i was not married/not with my DH, and think i was pregnant all the time. you can drive yourself NUTS!!

I'm getting them about half way through my pack of pills, no where near my period This time I've been having quite bad nausea as well and have run to the toilet quite a few times thinking I was going to throw up!

Did it calm down once you were married then?

oh yeah. i was mostly just worried about having an unplanned pregnancy, and i would get really paranoid about it !

but if it's really different from how you used to be, maybe you should talk to your doctor?

I'm not sure I would mind that much about an unplanned one but I suppose I would like to be married before!

Thanks for your input everyone

Maybe you should speak to your doctor about changing your pill as I was on one (cannot remember name sorry) but it was giving me serious headaches and being sick so my doctor changed it to another one and then I was fine!

Now I am not on the pill when my period is coming I get bloated, sore breasts, back ache, cramps and pains but my period only lasts 3/4 days and isn't heavy when it first happened and we were TTC until OH changed his mind I thought I was pregnant as I had not had anything like it before, sadly not

Oh sorry you weren't I've decided to come off my pill now. I've figured that 5 years is long enough messing around with my hormones.

I did forget to mention that I was peeing every 30 minutes if that and it was very desperate. I'm thinking that was probably just cystitis or something now.
