    Im on Marvelon, the combined pill and have been for about 6 months now. Its been perfect for me, no side effects or anything.

    Now the past few weeks I havent been great at taking my pill on time, and for the past week Ive had lots of pregnancy symptoms (exactly the same as I did when I was pregnant with my first). And Ive just been "feeling" really pregnant iykwim??

    Now, Ive taken two tests in the past week :blush: Just because I was going mad and they were neg. However, Im still having symptoms and still feeling this! Im due AF on sunday... so what is the earliest I can do a test?? And also, is it true if you get pregnant on the pill you can still have a period :shrug: I heard that...

    What should I do?? x :flower: x

    I think you can get tests that work a few days before your period is due, but I'd wait and see if you're late first. It is possible to still bleed due to the pill but I'd be surprised if you were already a few weeks gone and had 2 false negatives.

    Yeah I can understand why you might be worried. The only thing I can suggest is to take a test that's designed to give a result before your period is due such as clicky

    Just be aware that it's only 62% accurrate this early!

    With my last baby, I only got a BFP a few days after AF was supposed to arrive. I tested almost everyday until then because I was SO impatient.

    i was on marvelon for a while and if i remember... i think i had some weird symptoms at some point... sicky and headachy?

    do a first response day before and day due as u said... but give urself a few days before doing a normal test/cbd if af doesnt arrive.

    good luck! xxxx

    Yeah I agree, I'd say try the day it's due, then a few days afterwards. I got pg on the pill even though I took it at 6am every single day and wasn't sick, and I swear if I took it later one day it was only by about 2 hours lol.
    Good luck, and hope you get the result you want :)

    Does it matter if you don't take your pill at the same time every day?? I never do!! I just try to take it in the morning before work but sometimes I forget til the evening or at the weekends I sleep in.... Fuffyburra did you really get pg on the pill?? And you didn't miss any?!
