Question Pregnancy Q

My boobs are getting bigger with stretch marks on them.. I can't sleep at night because I feel so nauseated and I have no appetite. Ive been on birth control for 2 years I've missed taking my pills for 3 weeks.. not on purpose though.. im not on my dads insurance and they were so expensive.. Ive had these symtoms before and I take test and they always come out negative. But this time it is really scaring me. I know theres a good chance cuz me and my fiance don't use condoms. I wouldnt be sad if i was pregnant im just so tired of spending money on preg test and they are never positive. I don't know whats wrong with me.. Doesn't it take a long time to get preg if you have been on the pill for years and then get off them and try to get preg??

Re: Pregnancy Q

Glad i live in the UK!! dont have to worry about never being able to get treated like in the USA! i hate that about america its very sad!
If you suddenly come off the pill ur body will go through funny changes anyway! and that doesnt mean u r pregnant. If you dont want to spend lots on tests go on ebay!! LOL thats what i did.
I come off the pill and my periods got back to normal immediatley! and i got pregnant first time! was on the pill for 5 years! but many women take months to get back to normal cycle and it can take a while to get pregnant! im like my mum i get pregnant very easily! which has been a blessing to me.

But remember ur body was used to the pill and now its going without it so things happen,speak to ur doc if i was u mabie u could be preg! so find out for sure

Re: Pregnancy Q

I was on the pill for 9 years, It only took us 6 monthes to get pregnant... I have a friend who was on it for about 6 years, and got pregnant the same month they went off it... If you have missed a period and are still getting negative HPT (I got a negative two days before I missed mine, and then a very faint positive two days after I missed mine), you can always go to a clinic to get a blood test...Good Luck!

Re: Pregnancy Q

chick4you - if you want to be on the Pill, go find your local Planned Parenthood. They have sliding scale fees based on what you can pay - money shouldn't prevent you from getting effective birth control.

As for being preg, I was on the pill for 13 years, stopped it in May, started getting my period again in July and started 'trying' in Sept. Got preg in Oct.! So it can take you body some time to re-regulate after the Pill, although as Teresax pointd out, it can happen that you conceive right away, depending where you are in your cycle. Good luck!

Re: Pregnancy Q

Im just curious if you cant afford bc pills or comdoms how are you going to afford being pg? Im sorry but if you cant afford to prevent pregnancy then you cant afford to have sex either. I agree there are places like planned parenthood orhealth depts that can help you with bc.

Re: Pregnancy Q

Again it is a shame that in america u cant get treated if u dont have insurence! the NHS might be a bit rubbish at times here but we dont have to worry about things like this it is very sad! u should be more careful if u cant afford the pill!

Actually there are many places to go in the US that are either based on your pay scale or free. Every city has clinics...look in the yellow pages under clinics. I was not on insurance when I got pregnant and went to a free clinic ran by a church. I didn't have to pay anything and I got a blood test and an ultrasound at 7 weeks. I am now on COBRA so I do not use the clinic but I know they do that all through pregnancy. Also, once pregnant Medicaid will pay for everything...all you have to do it apply. Go to your cities dept of family and children. It is almost impossible to be denied ( I was due to making too much money but that is rare.) As for getting birth control, planned parenthood does it as do many of the private clinics. It is important to know your resources.

Re: Pregnancy Q

I was on the bc for 6 yrs then came off and the month after got pg, then went back on bc for 3 yrs and took 5-6 months to become pg this time. It don't take much. I took a p test the week that I missed my AF and was a BFN, then waited til the next week and took another and it came out BFP, so over the counter tests are not always that great, lots of false negatives, never a false positive though. I would go the blood test route, it will cost less in the long run. don't have the money? try a clinic near you, or hospital. good luck, hope you get the answer you are looking for.

Re: Pregnancy Q

Fair enough but here u automatically get all health care free when u r pregnant or not on a good wage, it is just that all americans sit and worry as they dont have insuance so they cant get what they need, its not like that here we are looked after thats all
