I agree with NE. Go ASAP to a GYN and have it checked!!!! One of the best but oh so subtle signs of OC is a slight swelling/bloatness in the abdoment. That is why OC is so hard to detect - virtually all the female population can say they are bloaty at some point. They should do a vaginal ultrasound at the minimum, a pelvic exam vaginally and rectally, and possibly a CA-125 test although this give too many false positives to be really a good screening tool.
