TTC, I stopped taking birth control , I was supposed to start my new pack on november 25, but didnt, now the last three days I have been nauseous, bloated, and this morning I had pink spotting. Im supposed to get my period between now or in the next couple of days. Could I be pregnant? Or is this a side effect of going of off birth control?

Hello Good Evening,

This might be either implantation bleeding or pill side effect bleeding:

Implantation bleeding – a very early sign of pregnancy – occurs when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining.
During implantation, the fertilized egg (called a blastocyst at this stage of development) burrows and embeds itself underneath the wall of the womb (uterus).
Because the uterine lining is rich with blood, some women can experience spotting and even cramping during this process.

For the most part, implantation bleeding is lighter and occurs earlier than your regular menstrual period. Sometimes, however, implantation bleeding may be heavier, so it can be easily confused with a regular period.

So both the possibilities are there, so you should wait for next 5-7 days and get urine pregnancy test done.
