Hi. I'm 37 years old, mom of two. I have been on Jolessa for nearly a year. Last period was Sept. 25-normal. I've noticed a few unusual things since that last period. About a week after, I had a crampy pain in my left side joined by about a day of thin discharge--I think I ovulated then. Fast foward another week and I had the same type of pain in my right side. Shortly after, for about four days, I had to pee more often than usual--no burning, discharge, or odor, just lighter in color than usual. A few days ago I had some cramping in the lower part of my abdomen; felt like period cramps. I also noticed about then that my vaginal discharge is almost none; I usually wear a pantyliner because I normally have quite a bit. Also, my appetite has been fluctuating; I haven't lost it, but I have bouts where I'm hungrier than usual. The other night my hunger actually woke me up in the middle of the night. I'm not sure if I am pregant because I don't have any other symptoms like nausea, smell/food aversions, breast tenderness, fatigue, etc. like I did when I was pregnant before. I did have two days this month where I missed my pill dose (one by 6 hours the week after my period, the other by 12 yesterday). I don't want to wait until my next period (that would be December); can I use the Jolessa like a regular pack of monophasic pills? Meaning, can I not take them next week (when my normal period would be due if I was on a monthly pill) to bring on a period and then resume them as normal? Really not sure if I need to call my gyn. Thanks!View Thread
