*not sure if this is TMI and might belong better in the saloon, so mods please don't hesitate to move this if needed!*
I've done a couple google searches, but I'm finding so many different answers, or not accurate answers, and I'm not really into trusting google for something like this. I will be going to my doctor at some point - though he takes about 2 weeks to book an appointment with, so in the mean time a couple questions.
I am on the pill (tri-cyclen lo) and have been on it for ~9 months. I take the 21 day version, but take it all the way through my period so I don't get a period at all anymore per my doctors orders. Long story I won't really go into other than I would get downright awful cramps and nothing worked to prevent them or ease them in any way so my doctor suggested taking the pill right through at least for the next while.
I missed a pill maybe 1.5 weeks ago, give or take. Per instructions I doubled up pills the following morning when I remembered. Boyfriend and I have sex generally every day, we do not use any prevention other than BC + pull out. So, I don't remember exactly which day this happened, but somewhere between 1-3 days after I forgot my pill and doubled up, we had a "whoops" and boyfriend failed to pull out. First and only time that has happened. I thought nothing of that and we thought "well I'm on BC so NBD". About 4 days ago now I had some odd cramps off and on all day and night, and into the next morning. They felt like period cramps. I took some tylenol around 3:30 the first day and went to boyfriends soccer game, after the came the cramps came back so they only left for maybe 2 hours. So cramps lasted maybe 24 hours total from one afternoon to the next. 2 days later (day before yesterday) I had some spotting. It wasn't a lot at all. Yesterday I had more spotting, again not a lot but I did use a tampon since I was going out and "just in case". It only lasted a few hours and haven't had spotting again since last night.
Does that sound like implantation cramps/spotting? Or is implantation bleeding more like an actual period rather than cramps? Missing a pill and doubling up, then having an oops a couple days later ...could I actually be pregnant? I will be taking a test but I'd really like to wait until I can see my doctor, unless I start feeling nauseous or something then I'll go ahead and take a test sooner than my doctors.
