Ok so im on the pill and ive been on it for about 2 months but i had sex with my boyfriend within the first few days of getting on it and i dont think its fully active in that time. In the first few weeks i was very good with remembering to take it but then got abit forgetfull due to work, so i might have missed a day and taken it the next which has happened a couple of times. A couple of weeks ago i woke up and all of a sudden felt nauseas and started throwing up, it was only a very small amount like a teaspoon amount and was white/clearish and only happened 3 times in a row and then i felt fine but had a mild touch of nausea throughout that day, by the next day it was gone. Since then ive gone to the doctors and done 2 pregnancy tests which have both been negative (have had no more nausea), but latley ive noticed period like cramps on and off and im not due for my period for about 2 weeks yet. Im just wondering if this could still be pregnancy or just the pill mucking me around.

Hi Meg24,
Anytime you forget to take your pills, you increase your risk of getting pregnant. However, if you are remembering to double up in the next day, you should be OK. It is not uncommon for a woman to get cramping mid-cycle, or two weeks before your period as you describe. It also is common to get cramping if you forget to take your pills.
If you forget to take your pills often, you may want to carry them in your handbag, so you can take them when you remember. Or start associating them with something you do every day, like brushing your teeth, or going to bed. If you still have trouble remembering, talk with your doctor to see if perhaps there may be a better alternative for you other than the birth control pill.
Good luck.
