Do Breast Pain And Cramps Indicate Pregnancy Even After Taking Birth Control Pills?

I had sex a couple of days ago. I am on birth control and I take it around the same time, give or take a few hours and he pulled out. My breasts now are hurting and I am cramping. I am around 4 pills away from getting my period (taking the placebo pills). I am scared I am pregnant.

Hello,

Symptoms are suggestive of premenstrual, stage sometimes these symptoms are mistaken as pregnancy. I believe there are very less chances of getting pregnant as you are already birth control pills.

Sometimes delayed periods may be the result of hormonal changes in body with taking of OCP's and sexual intercourse. Weakness, anxiety and stress may also cause delayed periods.

I suggest you to go for a pregnancy test week after your due dates.

I hope it was helpful. You can write me back for further quires.

Thank you for choosing us.

Hi,

The symptoms you mentioned in your question are also suggestive of premenstrual symptoms. If your periods is delayed by a week then I suggest you to go for a pregnancy test. But there are very less chances go getting pregnant as you are already go birth control pill. There are cases in which these symptoms come and periods gets delayed. Periods get delayed with hormonal changes in body, stress, anxiety, weakness and sexual intercourse itself can result in delayed periods.

I hope it was helpful to you. You can write me back for further quires.

Thank you for choosing us.
