I really don't want to be pregnant just yet. I just got married, and I'm about to start a job as a nurse.

Here are the facts:
-I am taking Loestrin 24, so I usually have very light periods, and sometimes nothing.
-I didn't have any bleeding at all this month
-I haven't missed any of my pills, I have only just been off by an hour or so a few times.
-We mostly use condems, but sometimes not, only a couple of times this month without.
-I took a pregnancy test, and it was negative, after I missed my period.

However, I've been having these symptoms:
-back pain
-Heartburn/chest pain
-nausea
-feeling bloated
-Pressure in abdomen
-constant constipation, with a constant urge to defecate.
-Constant urination, hunger and thirst (but these are normal for me).

I've been really anxious about this, so I could just be making up the symptoms, and some of them might be because of anxiety.

If you are on birth control, you use condoms and had a negative preg test, then you are probably not pregnant.All those symptoms could be just nerves. You are starting a new job and you are nervous about it. I would not worry about it at all.
