Pregnant or worried??

I have a question similar to breakerfall's. I have been on the pill for a while so my periods haven't been regular. Last week I had a very short period. It was two days and I only bled at night, and only a little bit. It seemed very odd. I have since stopped taking the pill altogether because I thought that if my period was going to come then I should start a new pack and try to get my cycle regular.

Now, I am having some strange symptoms, such as terrible headaches, sore breasts (if I touch them it is uncomfortable, but not too painful), increased vaginal discharge (clear), slight nausea (not too bad), feeling like I am going to burst into tears for no reason. I had a really strange dream last night-I dreamt that I looked at my breasts in the mirror and they were purple like bruises. I think this is because I kept looking at them in the mirror to see if they are getting darker (I read that that is a sign). OH, that was weird!

I'm pretty scared. I do want a baby, but the problem is that my boyfriend (of two years) doesn't.
I haven't taken a test because I think it is too early and also I am kind of too scared to find out.

Does this sound pregnant or just worried? I am also scared to start taking the pill again in case I am pregnant-can it cause harm?


Thanks a lot. I am driving myself nuts here, so any input would be appreciated~!

Re: Pregnant or worried??

It could be pregnancy or it could you being too worried. The only way to tell either way is by taking a test.
You can wait about 20 days after the sex you think you might have gotten pregnant from and take a test. Or if you really want to ease your mind you can go to your doctor or planned parenthood clinic and get a blood test. Those can be taken a week after conception and be accurate with the results.
It will cost more than a home test but it could be worth it to ease your mind.
