Hi ladies This is my first time posting here, I'm glad I found a BC board.
Long story short, I was taking my birth control (OTC-Lo) pretty crappily this past month. Taking it at weird hours, and I think I skipped 2 total in the first and second weeks. (not consecutively, and I doubled up when I remembered, but still more than I have before.) Five days later, (not when I missed the pills) I started (brown, scanty) spotting and cramping BAD (starting Monday and still spotting today [Saturday]). I've been really nauseous and I am having a "let down" feeling in my boobs (if you've breastfed before you now what I mean... feels exactly like a letdown reflex!)
I've been POAS obsessively (I'm ashamed lol) since Monday and no lines. It is at all still possible for me to be pregnant? I thought that if the spotting was implantation bleeding (hubby and I DTD the 2nd, 6th, 13th, and 18th) I would have gotten at least a faint positive by now (5 days later).
Should I call my OB and try to set something up? I know if you miss two pills in a row you'll spot but I have never had a problem on OTC-Lo spotting almost a week AFTER missing pills (and taking them correctly after messing up and prior to the onset of spotting.)
I'm sorry this is so confusing. I am just looking for some input on whether I should call my OB or just wait it out? My last astive pill is Monday and then it's placebo time. Help?
