I realise this article has been written quite some times ago, but here is my story.
I have been on the pill most of my life, the only time I didn't take it was when I was TTC and then got pregnant with my daughter who was born 3 years ago. Breastfeeding didn't work for me, and I stopped it at 6 weeks, my periods returned 4 weeks later and I went back on the same pill I had been before getting pregnant on my OB's advice. I've been on that pill for 3 years now, never had any other symptoms on it exept mood swings when there are about 3 pills left on the pack (mine is a 21 pills no placebo pill brand).
Now as I write I am still left with 2 pills to take for this month, but I have been having a crazy sore breast for over a week, peed more in the past week, and raging mood swings for the past 5-6 days as well. This past weekend I even had brief moments of queaziness. I finish my pill pack this coming Wednesday and my period never come until the Monday after that. I took two tests already, both negative, but I can't shake the feeling something is different here, so I am waiting for the time my periods should come to see what happens, but this is getting crazy, just today I noticed my sense of smell is sharper too.
I keep wondering how can it be that I have so many symptoms that could be linked to pregnancy that EARLY! I mean come on my period is not due for another week. With both my daughter and the missed miscarriage I had before her the only symptom I had until 6 weeks into pregnancy was sore breast, not nausea and crazy smell sense.
