Question: Since March 2012 my husband and I have been trying to concieve another child. We have a 4yr old girl. In September I went into my OB ( my periods were coming every 21 days) and he put me on 50mg Chlomid. I did 2 cycles of that and then had severe abdominal pains after the 2nd round. He did an ultrasound and found a chocolate cyst on my right ovary and suspects i have endoetriosis( he did no testing to confirm this) He prescribed me to take Natazia for one month. I started that on the 1st day of my period ( oct 28th 2012) had my period for 7 days which is long for me. Last week Tues Nov 20th i was having PG symptoms like nausea, and very tender breasts. My period started on Friday and was brownish black spotting and is now done. Bleeding only lasted 3 days? Which is not normal for me. Today I feel crampy, nauseous and still my breasts are tender. Should I be buying a UPT? Or could it be side effects of the birth control?

Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

If you were taking the pills regularly on a fixed time then chances of you being pregnant is negligible.

Nausea, Tender breasts and lighter bleeding are among the side effects of oral contraceptive pills. Also this menstrual cycle was not a delayed one for you, it further supports you not being pregnant.

However failures can happen with any contraceptive. So there is no harm in taking a urine pregnancy test to be sure.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
