Question: I'm worried that I may be pregnant...


 Scared_Alot - Sun Sep 25, 2005 5:25 pm

I am 21 years old and I have been with my boyfriend for over four years. My periods are always quite irregular, despite the fact that I am on the pil (Marvelon) and take it very regularly. Around Septemeber 1st, I was due to have my period, but I skipped it, because I chose to not take my sugar pills, but instead to continue taking the next batch of pills. My boyfriend and I had intercourse on August 27th, September 3rd, September 10th and September 18th (but the last time he did not ejaculate). On September 6th, I started what seemed like a period but it was quite brownish. It went on for about a week and then it stopped for about 2 days and then started again. On September 20th, the brownish discharge turned into what seems like a normal period and it is red. (It's still going on.) During all of this time, I have been using tampons. Also, I have been urinating more frequently and I have been a little tired. But the fatigue could have something to do with just starting my courses at university again. I know that this seems complicated, but I am very worried that I could be pregnant and I am just wondering if it's possible... Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
