I had sex on April 28, 2010.I noticed that my period didnt come on after that.My regular period is the 17th of every month.My period didnt come on for May.My sister and my mom said that it looked like i was pregnant.So i decided that I would get a pregnancy test and I took it.The results of it was that it was negative.They told me that it was probably too early to take a pregnancy test and that i should wait til later and take another one.So i wanted to be safe from now on and i went and got some birth control pills.The pills made my period come on.It stayed on a whole month.Lets just say that the pills and my body didnt work out.So if it wasnt for the pills my period wouldnt have came on for May.So thats one month that i missed for my period.June 11th i stopped taking the pills cause they made big blood clots come out of me and i got worried.I went to the OBYGN and i told him what was going on with my body and the birth control pills.He told me that he didnt understand why the big clotes were coming out of me.He gave me some more birth control pills that had iron in them.I didnt take them because my period didnt come on for June.So thats the second month that my period didnt come on.As the days went by i started noticing that i was always tired.If i wasnt moving then i was sleep.I was going to the bathroom more than what i usually go.I started feeling cramps in my lower abdomen.They were painful.The cramps came mainly on my sides.I noticed that i started getting a line on each side of my stomach as if it was a belly bump.I also noticed that my belly button started going in.My appetite increased.When I woke up every morning and when i went to bed i feel nauseated.I could feel the throw up come up in my throat but i swallowed it so it wouldnt come out.So July came and i noticed that i started bleeding this pinkish stuff.I thought it was my period but it wasnt.My period usually stays on for about a week.But this stayed for like a day or two and went away.Around July the 17th (when my period is supposed to come on) i noticed that it was brownish stuff also coming out of me.It had a little odor.I didnt know what it was.So i didnt have a period for July either.Its now August and i bleed for one day and it went away.But i did go to the Health Department August the 2nd and i told her that the birth control pills didnt work and i also told her what was going on with my body.She just sent me to another nurse.The second nurse gave me some more birth control pills when i told her the ones that the other ones didnt work out for me.She told me to start taking them that same day.Im hestiate about taking them becuase of my first experience with them.I havent took another pregnancy test since then.I dont know what to do.Im kind of fed up.

Hi Anonymous!

Thank you for your question.

You have a few options regarding your situation.

You can stop taking the birth control pills altogether (you are right, they may not agree with you. Not all women are suitable candidates for the birth control pill) and try something like condoms, spermicidal inserts or a method that will work better for you.

And I do think it's a good idea to take another pregnancy test. You may not be pregnant (changing pills and stopping/starting will definitely change your monthly cycle) but if you really do have a larger belly then a test is very important.

Will you let us know the outcome of your test?
