This past month I quit my using my oral contraceptives because I missed a couple pills and my doctor instructed me to discontinue usage until after my next period began. As a result, I got my period a week or so early, and I didn't really think anything of it. I had unprotected sex a few time during my period (which lasted about 8 days, longer than average). My period ended a couple of weeks ago, but earlier this week I experienced some spotting. I've also been having horrible mood swings and really bad headaches, and lately my lower back has been hurting a lot.

I've read that all of these things can be symptoms of pregnancy; they're also symptoms of PMS, but I have NEVER experienced any of these conditions before, even when I wasn't on birth control. It's still a little early for me to take a test, but is it possible for me to be pregnant, even though I've been on birth control for about a year?

Thanks!

It is possible, especially because you've stopped taking your pills so you're no longer protected. Do you have any idea how many dpo you are?

According to some website, I probably conceived (IF I'm preggers) around the 10th of this month, so doctors would say that I am (hypothetically, of course) 4-5 weeks.

i had those symptoms when i first got off the pill. i think it was just my body freaking out not having the hormones and all. however it might also be entirely possible for you to be pregnant. i conceived not long after my first period off the pill. apparently some people are very fertile when they first get off it.

Update on symptoms: ALWAYS HUNGRY, especially in the morning. I'm almost to the point where I'll eat anything in sight... I eat more than my boyfriend now! For the past couple of nights, I've had difficulty sleeping/getting comfortable in bed. This morning I woke up at 3:00, craving tomato soup with basil and grilled cheese sandwiches. Are these also symptoms of birth control withdrawal?

Thanks!

Those are all symptoms associated with coming off of the Pill - it's a big hormonal transition because the fake hormones are trying to leave your body and your natural hormones are trying to take over. That can cause PMS/pregnancy like symptoms as well as irregular bleeding.

Bleeding and spotting can be related to that hormonal confusion, but it can also be related to ovulation - so never assume bleeding means you are infertile.
