So here's my story. I'm not trying to get pregnant. My LMP was 2 Feb. I am on YAZ, and have gotten preggo on it before (miscarry). I am pretty compliant when it comes to taking my pill, same time, every day. However, last intercourse was 17 Feb. I took all the pills prior to the 17th, but ONLY 4 afterwards as I was hospitalized for 10 days!! So in short, I missed 9 active pills in a row, and have yet to have a period. HPTs have been neg. Serum Hcg was 2.39 (negative), but I'm experiencing all the symptoms I had last pregnancy. Nausea, fatigue, headaches, smell sensitivity, sticky, stringy, clear vaginal discharge, constipation, cramping at times, and MOODINESS, lightheadedness/dizziness, elevated BBT (wasn't charting, but I know what is normal for me) (no sore breasts yet). I am so confused. What is the likliehood of me having taken 14 pills in a row, then missing 14 in a row and now being pregnant?? I ovulated on YAZ in the past and got preggo. I don't even know when I would have ovulated (if I did)!! so I can't tell when to take another test or blood draw. I'm an RN and am racking my brain trying to figure out what's going on!! If I am pregnant, this child would be a miracle baby. I was hospitalized for a terrible car wreck that banged me up pretty bad. PLEASE, someone help put my mind at ease or offfer any advice. I have an ultrasound and exam on 4 April, but any thoughts and comforts would be greatly appreciated.
Have you taken an HPT yet?
I'd be questioning my situation also, if I were in your shoes. In large part because I became pregnant on YAZ 7 + years ago. I was on YAZ AND we used a condom! After that I'd never stand by the pill or it's effectiveness. But that is just my personal experience, in which I concieved, delivered, and have been raising the love of my life!
When I found out my symptoms were: Late on my period (which of course set off MAJOR alarms for me because you could set a clock by me I was so regular... on time, EVERY TIME), my breasts were sore, and I ended up w/ a UTI. So IMHO either you need to see a Dr to get a test from them and 1 of 2 things would come of it: you are in fact Pregnant or your body is just stressed which can cause things like this also.

Just try not to stress your self out! Either way your body is going through a lot, between an accident and the missed pills... My body always freaked out when I'd miss one, much less that many. If you are, you can't change it, and I wish you the best, if not I would suggest another bc method, the depo shot works great for me, but there are a ton of options now. Wishing you luck either way!
Make an appt. to have an ultrasound. Your body can exhibit pregnancy symptoms with ectopic pregnancy which is very dangerous to you, and the baby cannot survive it. You need to get that checked out ASAP!
