I posted this already in the "Am I Pregnant" forum, but I just realized I probably should have posted here.

I started Lo Loestrin FE on August 21. I am supposed to start my third pack today, but I am concerned. My last period started September 7. I just finished my second pack, but I didn't have a period. I had VERY light spotting 3 weeks ago, but that's it. Just a few light brown spots when I wiped. I missed two pills in my second pack, not consecutively. I know, I know. Irresponsible. I work full time, go to school full time and rescue dogs, and getting into the rhythm of taking my pill every day was tough. This past weekend, I was sure I would start my period. I have had: breast tenderness, mood swings, frequent urination, frequent bowel movements, very tired, clear discharge and gassy. Usually my PMS symptoms are nothing more than a little moodiness, cramps and chocolate cravings.

Obviously there is a possibility that I could be pregnant. I have taken 3 tests. 2 were negative and the 3rd, a digital test, came up with a question mark. Must be faulty. On the other hand, I understand that having an irregular period the first couple of months on BC is normal. So my question is this: should I start my new pack today or wait until I am sure I'm not pregnant? Will it hurt anything if I continue my BC? Also, is it normal for PMS symptoms to change when on BC?

I would appreciate any advice so much! Thank you in advance.

its prolly best to have a visit with your doctor at this point you need a blood test and professional advice since you didnt use the birth control as directed, before you start a new pack. but if isnt showing up on a test it should be ok to start the next pack. just get checked to make sure everything is ok, my period has vanished to after i started the ring, left in in 3 weeks and took it out for good after spotting the whole time and now nothing like 3 weeks later still. so it can happen.
