The spotting and cramps could be from ovulation. Not implantation. Or it could be from implantation.

There really is no way to tell.

I'd suggest contacting your Dr. If you are pregnant...you'll need to go off your BC asap. So waiting the 2 weeks may not be wisest.

BC shouldn't do any harm, I know mine even states that it will not harm a pregnancy. Of course I'm on a different one, but I would think that it wouldn't do anything.

ETA Just looked up the specific one mentioned in the first post, it does say not to take if you think you may be pregnant. So I would stop it either way, and just refrain from having intercourse until you know for sure, or use another form on contraceptive in the mean time.

I've read a couple different things regarding my BC in particular. My doctor told me when I first started it that it would not harm a pregnancy. I'll look into that some more. =)

Edit: so googling a few different sources, they all say NOT to take it while pregnant. Not sure what to believe now as I am 100% certain my doctor said it was fine. Hmmmm.=/

The one source I looked at was I believe the pill's manufacturer, perhaps call your doctor and find out for sure?

I think I'll do that. Not sure if receptionists can answer that sort of question or not. My doctor's office is only open 3 days per week, and only a few hours each day so generally he's with a patient (hence being so hard to book), so generally if I phone I am not able to speak to him directly unfortunately.

I also just read another source that stated BC in general is not a good idea during pregnancy, but since it is possible to become pregnant while on the pill there are women who do not go off it right away and there is actually only a small risk in taking it. The source stated that the highest risk would be in low-birth weight and/or premature birth, but there was no hardcore evidence in this.

I'll call the doctors tomorrow AM and see if I can find out what he recommends.

I would go ahead a take a test as soon as you can. Do it first thing in the morning as that's when it's most acurate early on.

How long from oops day to day of spotting and cramps?

I think unlikely that you are pregnant. You will first feel more toga usually tired, sire breasts, increased appetite with some nausea. This is more likely your body being a bit "confused" by the ongoing hormones from pills disallowing you period. That's my uneducated guess.

I have been tired lately, going to bed a couple hours earlier than usual and more tired in the AM at the time I generally get up at. Breasts have been sore, though just at the sides so I didn't think that was really a symptom, but who knows.

My cousin recently had her baby and she got pregnant while on the pill, and had no symptoms at all until she found out at 10 weeks.

So I guess anything is possible.

It sounds like you really want to be pregnant. In that case, just stop the BC and do it like crazy!

Everyone's bodies are different. I get pregnancy symptoms regularly, just from changing hormone levels. I am a woman, in a committed relationship with a woman... so there is zero chance I am pregnant. But I feel like I am sometimes. So it could just be your body being a woman's body.

Good luck!
