User :   hello
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   Hello, Ive been confused about this situation and im worried..
A simple test could help, but its not me its my best friend.

Shes on Birthcontrol pills, and missed 1 pill, now the symptoms are nearly the same
as being pregnant it seems like, How would you even have a clue?
Only thing she isn't doing is throwing up, besides that, she has Breast tenderness, soreness, Being tired all the time, shes been eating more. seems to be gaining belly fat. Witch really wasn't there before this pill came along.
She said she did have unprotected sex the day she didnt take the pill.
So my question is what is going on? Is it possible shes pregnant and not having all the symptoms? and just pregnant? or maybe just the pill? Help? please..
User :   i already wrote it so i wouldn't forget
User :   help please

Doctor :   Firstly it is important like which day of her menstrual cycle did she have unprotected sex?
User :   it was i believe a week before she had the unprotected sex.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :  
Also has she continued the medication thereafter?
User :   Yeah, The day she missed the pill she already had gone through her cycle. because she took her pill normally right after that day she missed it.
Doctor :  
Why is she taking birth control pill?
