I am taking monofemme as my contraceptive and was prescribed metronidazole for a week, for BV. I took this and then had sex with a condom while on the antibiotic but the condom broke. About 4 hours later my bleed started. This lasted for 5 days and I then had unprotected sex the following day, thinking I was safe on my pill, I was on the inactive tablets at the time though, which was seven days after the end of my antobiotics. I am now experiencing sore breasts on the top and sides, lower abdomen and back pain ( which I also had with the BV) and want to cry all the time. Please help me, could I be pregnant, have a hormone imbalance or perimenopausal? Am I just freaking out? I feel like im going crazy. As I am only 4 days after my the end of my period I presume it is too early to test for pregnancy? Please help

  • You are probably not pregnant being that the unprotected sex was right after your period. There is only about 2 or 3 days out of the month that you can get pregnant and that usually occurs 10 to 15 days after your period. Dont take a test just yet, if you take it too early it will show a false neg. I did this! I was pregnant with my son and it said I wasnt preg. took the test again about 10 days later and it was pos. IF you are pregnant you will (most likely) have spotting about 10 days after the unprotected sex. Hope this helps!

  • P.S. You wont experience symptoms, like sore breast, etc. until about 4 to 6 weeks in so what you are feeling is prob. just a coincidence.
