I am a mom to 3 children ages 5, 3, almost 1. I went back on the BCP in Feb and had normal periods until May. It was very light and only lasted 3 days. My breasts were sore (which never happens before my period only when I have been pregnant) and I had the same kind of bleeding at the very beginning of my third pregnancy. I kept taking the pill because HPT was negative then I did not get my period in June. The Sunday before I should have started in June I got some brownish discharge when I went to the bathroom (I got this with my second pregnancy) I have also had mild cramping, enlarged sore breasts, headaches, moodiness, and aching in my groin area (much like when I had vericose veins down there during my second and third pregnancies). I have taken several HPT's all negative (some I wasn't sure if I saw faint line or evaporation line). I finally called my gyn and went in for a blood test to check for pregnancy. They called the next day and said it was negative so I made an app't to talk to him. When I saw him the following week it had been 6 weeks since I had the "light" period. My doctor did not examine me at all and swore up and down that I had "pill amenorrhea". He told me that "most women feel lucky when they don't have a period". I explained to him that after being on the pill for 16 years and only getting off to get pregnant I have NEVER had this happen. I also told him that the only time I have ever had these symptoms is when I was pregnant. I asked him if the blood test could have been a false negative ( a phlebotomist had told me that if taken too early I could get a false neg.). He swore by the test. I just got the feeling that he was blowing me off even when I told him that if I wasn't pregnant I was worried about any other condition that could be going on. :mad: It is now 8 weeks since I had any bleeding and I'm not sure what to do. I stopped taking the pill after I didn't have my period in June b/c if I was pregnant I knew I shouldn't take it.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
