Could it be pregnancy? Or the pill?

Hi, I'm normally on Cerazette - progesterone only pill - I missed it for a quite few days a month or so ago and thought nothing of it. I've been on it for months and always been 'lucky'.

About a week ago I started feeling really nauseous though I wasn't sick - I couldn't eat the day it started and just the smell of food made me feel worse. I was dizzy, lightheaded but I put it down to sickness. The next day I felt a bit better but was still dizzy and lightheaded with a little less nausea - still no vomiting. The next day it stopped.

2 days later I noticed 2 very pale stretch marks appear on my stomach - I haven't had rapid weight gain but I know it can be hormone related. It's good to note my mum had very early stretch marks.

I stopped taking the pill 4/5 days ago thinking it could be the progesterone in the pill - but if that's the case would it still be like this now?

Since then I've had the following:

Heavy, tender breasts on and off.
Sore nipples.
A craving for salt.
Pain in my left pelvic area.
Pain in my left side near ribs.
A sore/achey lower back.
1 morning I woke up at 11, went back to bed at 2 for 3 hours.
The last couple of days I've hardly slept at all.
I've had a lot of clear, watery CM.
Runny nose.
When I went to the toilet I had a really weird pulling sensation behind my belly button [no pain]
A couple of days ago I had a single drop of red blood when I wiped and nothing else.
Me and my partner had sex yesterday and immediately afterwards I had a pale brown sticky gooey CM but it didn't stick around.
I POAS today but had BFN.

Could this be the pill? Or pregnancy?

I really thought I'd have a BFP. I'm not TTC but I wouldn't say I'd be unhappy if it was pregnancy.

Due to the pill I don't have AF and I have no idea when I ovulate so how am I meant to know when to POAS =\ I'm so confused.

Any insight would be great? I really appreciate it x

Hi Anonymous,

I would certainly get a pregnancy test taken in order to see if you are pregnant as you are certainly having all the symptoms of pregnancy. You could always get a blood test from your physician to get more accurate results. Hope this helps and good luck.

Thanks for the reply :)

I did take a test this morning but it was negative. So should I do another? How long should I wait? I don't have periods or know when I ovulate so judging dates is hard.

Thanks xx
