I am having an ultrasound scan in 2 weeks for my IBS but it may end up showing more than that. If i am pregnant, although 18, i would cope as i work full time in a nursery so i have money, however telling my mum would be the hardest bit!!! I am completely taken over by this thought, i cannot think of anything else that could mess up my periods or my body like this. But i have read about phantom pregnancies so i dont want to think too much incase im tricking the body . . .why so complicated???
I don't think taking your pill 12 hours late would make you more prone to pregnancy. If it was any longer, then perhaps you would have another issue. I think your fine, honey!
If you are diagnosed with IBS though, make sure you refrain from sex if you experience any vomiting or diarrhea. This makes your pill more ineffective. The same with antibiotics.
At 18 I can understand completely that you're worried about telling family. Women always make the mistake of forgetting a pill. We can't remember everything. But try to think of it in a more positive way - at least you're sensible enough to know to take the pill!
As your symptoms are similar to mine, I can understand why you think you are pregnant. Go see your GP and explain the situation. Ask for a blood test, even if he/ she may tell you your not. Then deal with the situation depending on the result.
Good luck and I hope it all works out for the best.
