I'm not ttc, I'm on microgestin fe 1/20. I had bleeding on may 11th for 2 days, then my period on may 26th for 2 days. My period was 2 days late..I've been told its just breakthrough bleeding, and I would believe that if I didn't have so many pregnancy symptoms. Fatigue, headaches, breast soreness and sensitivity, mild cramps, montgomery glands are more noticeable, food aversions, aversions to smells, cold like symptoms, lower back ache..and a few others. I'm just wondering if anyone knows what might be going on..pregnancy tests don't come up positive for me until around 8 weeks, I've been pregnant 2 times so I feel stupid even asking, but I'm getting paranoid. Trying to tell if this is paranoia or if I might actually be pregnant..one thing that hasn't happened yet is a craving for milk, which I did with both of my previous pregnancies. Thanks for any comments..

  • I'd go for a blood pregnancy test/ ultrasound just to be sure and for peace of mind.

Thanks for any comments..I agree with the other person, a friend of mine never showed up positive on Pregnancy tests, they had to blood work in order for it to show up. And just because you craved milk with your other two doesn't mean that you will this time. Both of my pregnancies were very much different. Things I could eat with my first one, made me sick with my second one. Maybe (if you are pregnant) this pregnancy will be completely different than your other two- could be better could be worse. Good luck to you
