I'm 40 years old, & had tubal reversal 3 years ago which resulted in 4 miscarriages (last one 10/08). I had D & C 10/08, which caused extremely heavy & irregular/shorter periods for over 6 months (I went from consistent 28 day cycle to 24, 25, 27,26, 23, etc). My OB-GYN put me on Ortho-tricyclen Lo in May '09, trying to get my periods to go back to normal. I took pills in May, had 29 day normal cycle and started 06/19--per dr instructions, started new pack on day 3 of cycle as I did in May. I haven't taken bc pills in over 20 years, & I was under alot of stress (full time college student and mother of 3)...I forgot to take pills around days 7, 8 or so...for 3 days, & I think was around time I ovulated & was worried "what if" I had conceived, so I stopped taking completely. I was due to start my period July 17th. It is now July 20th and no period, I felt like I was going to start 6 days ago, cramping, sore breasts, ovary tenderness...and then stopped...now feel ok, a little bowel irritation off & on. Also clear "slimy" discharge but NO period???? Took HPT this morning was negative. Could I still be pregnant? Did I ovulate late due to 7 or 8 days of pills I did take?
