Had unprotected sex, on birth control. Having cramps, lower back pain, dizzines. Reason?

I have unprotected sex regularly. my partner and i have a commited relationship and have both been tested. i have been taking birth control for over a year but i occasionally forget to take it. but i always take it within 24 hrs. for the last 5 days or so i have been having period like cramps . my period is not due for another 3 days or so. i have never had cramps prior to my period before. also i have been having a lot of lower back pain and while showering last night i felt very faint. ( im not sure if its related but my breasts are more tender than normal.) any ideas?

OBGYN 's  Response
If you have been regular with your birth control pills in this cycle, your chances of conception are very minimal. Your symptoms could mean an impending period. To clarify about your status of being pregnant or not, you can get an assessment of the serum beta-hCG titres now or wait for your next period and go for a HPT 3-7 days later if you miss it. Urinary tract infections also can lead to similar symptoms of abdominal cramps and hence urinalysis also is essential in the current scenario. Hope this helps.
