I think its great you can get advice on here, I am 24 and in a fantastic relationship.

I have two questions; Im currently on cilest 21 day pills , and 7 days free, and have been for about a year, i was due on my period on the 27th october 2010, however on the 6th october i had antibiotics for a chest infection, on the 30th I was due on my period but i only came on for 3days extremely light only when i wiped. This has never happened before.. we always have unprotected sex,

I have done 4 test 2 error ans 2 negative last test was on the the 5th nov, is this normal to miss a period??

Then to top it all i went away on the 6th Nov and forgot my pills for 3 days and had sex again for those 3 days unprotected. I have just got back home and unsure what to do??

could I be pregnant?? If i was it would be fantastic news even though we wasnt trying..

Hi llou86,
We can't tell you what the right or wrong thing is. You advocate for yourself and your health however you need to. I realize this situation may be frustrating for you. It never is a bad idea in my opinion to call your doctor if you are unsure of what is going on and want to know. They are there to help you and assure your health is properly maintained. There are things that can cause you to mss a period, in addition to pregnancy. If you are missing your period, and the pregnancy tests are coming up negative. I probably would be either calling the doctor, or waiting until next month to see what happens.
Keep us posted on your journey with this.

Good luck and please let us know what the doctor says (as you are comfortable). My heart goes out to you. I know this can't be easy for you to endure.
Take care,

Hi llou86,

I'm sorry to hear this-- I, like Christine, also had a chemical pregnancy. It's important that you're surrounded by love and support. A loss is a loss-- no matter how far along you are or whether or not the pregnancy was chemical or viable.

Have you been to your OB, though? To confirm your pregnancy or loss? It is very important that you see a doctor for your health. In my case, even though I had a chemical pregnancy I did not have any symptoms or bleeding aside from my initial positive test, yet I needed a D&C otherwise I was at risk for hemorrhaging. I don't mean to scare you, just want to make sure you get good care. \
Please continue to update us.
