On the pill, missed period and discharge.

I've been reading a lot online the past few days trying to get an idea as to what might be going on, but I'm still pretty confused. So if someone can give me a little bit of insight, I'd really appreciate it.

I got a sinus infection and started a 20 day cycle of antibiotics on 12/8/11, my boyfriend and I did have sex a few times with no other protection except the pill, which wasn't the smartest idea, but I didn't really think about the antibiotic messing with my birth control. I'm on the pill and I was supposed to get my period last Sunday (12/18/11), but it never came, I figured it'd just come a little late as it sometimes does, but nothing at all, not even a bit of spotting. As far as I can remember, I didn't even have any premenstrual symptoms like I usually do. I started a new pack of active pills on 12/25/11 and I believe I started getting the cramps a day or two before. . and they've been pretty bad on and off, to the point that I go to the restroom because I feel like I might have started, and still nothing. I've had a clear discharge the past few days and I just started getting a white/yellowish stretchy discharge. I have no clue what might be going on, I'm a little afraid to take a test, just because either way I'd be a tad bit disappointed.

Thanks for any help.

Re: On the pill, missed period and discharge.

Ok, if you tell the doctor that your on BC, he will say that taking anti biotics will effect the effectiveness of the birthcontrol.

When the yellow/stretchy stuff that is ovulation discharge, and clear is fine.

if you start feeling abdominal pain, and increased breast sensitivity, i suggest getting a prengnacy test/doctor visit.

Re: On the pill, missed period and discharge.

Why not just take a pregnancy test since you already missed your period? Then you'll know for sure.
