I stopped my birth control mid-pack on Oct 30th and had a pretty heavy period about two days later, 11/1 that lasted three days with a heavy flow and bright red blood. I've read both opinions that it can or cannot count as your period, but I'm counting it as a period b/c it was heavier than my normal periods were. Since then, my husband and I have had sex almost everyday (we are newly weds
About two weeks ago, 11/20, I had super tender breast and nipples for about two days, almost so sore wearing a bra hurt. Also, about a week ago 11/25, I had some very light pinkish brown bleed during sex and then it lasted about a day. I didn't count this as a period b/c it was so light.
On BC I had a normal 28 day cycle and was very regular, so I figured I was due for my next period on 11/30 based off my last period that came when i stopped BC mid-pack. However, it's 12/2 and still no period. I've taken two pregnancy test and they have both been negative. They were generic grocery store brand test, like $10 for a pack of three.
Could it be that I am pregnant but it's too early to take a test - or that my cycle is completely messed up because I stopped mid pack? I read the sore breasts can be a symptom of pregnancy but also of your period (but that was two weeks ago and no period yet). Also, the light spotting I read could also be implantation. I'm just wondering why I'm getting these symptoms with no period and negative pregnancy tests.
Has anyone had a similar experience like this? Or has come off BC mid pack and had symptoms like these but wasn't pregnant?
Thank you in advance for your help!
