Hello all,

I know it must be annoying to read all of the "OMG lyke am i preggerz?!" posts, but I assure you that this will not be like that. I am wondering what you think about the symptoms I've been having.

I am on OrthoTriCyclen-Lo, but this month did not take it because I accidentally delayed the start of it by a week and figured that it would make me sick to start a week late like that. My period is a few days late, but I've had extremely light spotting for 5 days. The only reason I noticed it is because I use tampons early in case my period would start early. I've had a lack of discharge since then, which is odd for me. I'm not sure if it is just because I'm changing my tampons a lot, but my cervix seems swollen. It is EXTREMELY painful to insert tampons because they hit my cervix and I have to get it past my cervix to be fully inserted. I've also had a change in my bowel habits throughout the past two weeks or so.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
