I'm 27 and came off the pill last October after having been on it for approx. 8 years. For the first 2 months afterwards I got my period fairly regularly (November the 16th, then December 19th), but have not had a period since then (it's now the 5th February). For the last 3-4 weeks I've felt intermittently nauseated, light headed, and today had persistent lower back pain (more to the right side, but I have experienced lower back pain in the past). I've taken 2 home pregnancy tests, both negative (my partner and I use the withdrawal method at times, which I do realise isn't reliable birth control).
