Am I pregnant?

On febuary 27th, I had sex with my boyfriend, and he pulled out before he came. I am on the pill, Junel, and have been for a while. I am only supposed to get my period every 3 months, so I was not supposed to get one in febuary, but if I did- it wouldve been on the 25th. So, I was not worried about being pregnant because I'm on the pill, never forget, and my boyfriend pulled out. But on the 5th of this month (march) , I stoped taking my pill. It was about 5 days into the first week. I expected to get my period from BC withdrawrel like normal, but I did not. I waited 5 days, (the 10th) then took a pregnacy test- I got negative. The only real reason I think I'm pregnant is because I am extreamly bloated. I don't know if thats from eating too much, water retention, or pregnancy. My left and right ovary areas have been getting sharp pains randomly ( this is normal because I am prone to ovarian cysts). My breasts appear a little bigger, but I'm not sure because I could just be overanalyzing ( I still fit into my bra perfectly). I am also very tired. Could I just be suffering from ovarian cysts, or am I pregnant? I have endomitriosis if that changes anything.

Only a pregnancy test can determine if you are pregnant.

I stoped taking it because I was becoming depressed. The hormone levels didnt agree with me. Do you think I'm pregnant?

Hi Anonymous,
Yes, having endometriosis does change everything, as does having ovarian cysts.
Why did you stop taking your birth control on March 5?
The symptoms associated with ovarian cysts may be similar to other conditions such as endometriosis. Menstrual irregularities and pelvic pain shortly before a period (as you are aware) are symptoms. Pelvic pain is commonly experienced with endometriosis.
Usually, women with endometriosis have difficulty getting pregnant.
Because of your menstrual irregularities and symptoms, I suggest that you see your doctor or visit a health clinic, if that is where you get your medical care. A blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate than a urine test, can be done to determine if you are actually pregnant. I would suggest you talk with your healthcare provider on how you should be taking Junel.
