I started to take birth control at the beginning of March. I normally get my period at the beginning of the month but my doctor had told me it was ok to start before my period if I wanted to. About 3 weeks into the birth control, I started my period. I was still on active pills so it confused me a little but I knew my body was adjusting so I didn t have too much concern. I normally bleed for only 3/4 days but this lasted an entire week. Then my boyfriend came into town and we had unprotected sex. We had sex everyday for 5 days. On the fifth day, on took birth control that night but it was the last day I took it. I thought it was fine because the next day he was flying back home and we wouldn t be seeing each other for a while. I didn t think about the fact that sperm can live for 5 - 7 days and after a couple days of not being on the pill, I was no longer safe. About 5 days later, I started to have some bleeding. It was extremely dark and way less than usual and I don t think there was anything but the blood. However it did last more than a day so I m not sure that it s implantation bleeding. Is it possible just breakthrough bleeding from stopping the pill? On top of that, my boyfriend broke up with me so I have not eaten more than crackers in days and am extremely nauseous in the mornings. Could this be morning sickness or just related to my stress? I guess my best option is to take a pregnancy test but I don t even know when the best time to take one is. I know they say when your missed period is but I don t know when that would be since I was on birth control and it messed up my schedule... and is what I had a period or something else? I also heard 3 weeks after conception but I really don t want to wait that long since I already have so much going on. I don t want the added stress. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
