**If you don't want to read about feminine issues, please skip this post. Thanks**

So, since about 6 weeks after Jack was born, I have been on the "mini-pill." Which is a progestin only birth control. It has a pretty high pregnancy rate, especially when not taken at the exact time every day.
Another thing with this pill is that it keeps you from ovulating, which means no periods. So, I have not had a period yet.

Until Saturday.

Saturday I started spotting, and wasn't sure what was going on. It has gotten worse each day since then, and I have been having cramps, and is pretty much like a full blown period now.

I have a feeling that I had gotten pregnant, and am having a miscarriage. I don't know for sure though. I took a pregnancy test on sunday, and it was negative, but I am still not convinced. Especially since this is not supposed to happen. I have not missed a pill or anything either. There was just one day last week (thursday I think) where I was an hour late taking it.

It just doesn't make sense. I have kinda had the thought over the past few weeks about being pregnant, but kept brushing it off. I even bought a couple pregnancy tests at the dollar store (yes, they work fine!) but never used them. I didn't necessarily think I was pregnant, but it just kept popping into my mind... weird.

I have an appointment at the health clinic tomorrow at 3 to get more pills, and they will do a PG test there, and I will talk to the nurse about it.

I don't know if I will ever know for sure, but It's just a feeling I have had... and I wanted to share. Thanks for reading. I will update tomorrow if I find out anything.

My best friend has been on the mini pill for about a year and has irregular periods each month. Some months have been heavy and crampy and some months have been so light they hardly even count. Just thought hearing that might help put your mind at ease a litte...

good luck!

i had periods on the mini pill. you're probably fine. trust your intuition though, maybe call your dr (a lot of times they can answer questions over the phone, and you won't have to pay for a costly visit)

I pray that's not the case. Let us know what happens tomorrow!

the same thing happened to me when gabbi was about 9 months old. i didnt have a regular period, then just began bleeding for a few weeks. i honestly thought i had a miscarriage. i haven't been on birth control since we've been married though.
my only input really is that if you've miscarried, you'll be bleeding for at least 3 weeks... in my experience anyway :)
i pray you'll find some answers.
