Not sure if I am pregnant, because it's too soon, I guess I should stop taking bc and just wait to take the test?

1. I missed 2 pills on my last week of my birth control.
2. I got 3 days behind on my first week on my new birth control pack, and completely stopped taking this pack since I was so far behind.
3. Before/during I missed the 2 pills in my last week and during the first week I got 3 days behind I had intercourse with not secondary protection.
4. I am now feeling cramps and being bloated, and find myself a bit more irritable/moody and wanting to sleep in longer. I am currently taking a new pack of birth control and have been very accurate with it. I had my period twice in the month of June because of my inconsistancy of birth control pills.

5. MY MAIN QUESTION is: Could I be pregnant, and should I stop taking my current birth control pills until I have my period at end of the month? How soon can a take a test?
6. I am okay with being pregnant, because we were going to start trying in August anyways, but I don't want to jepordize having a miscarraige because I keep taking my pills.

Hi Anonymous

I suggest you discuss this with your ob/gyn. You may be pregnant, or you may not. There is no way for us to tell you one way or another. But since you plan to get pregnant whether you are now or not, it is a good time for a visit with the ob/gyn to be sure you are healthy and ready for pregnancy and you can be tested while you are there.

Good luck.
