I was on birth control from September 2011 til October 2012. I finished out my pack and had my period on October 18, 2012. I am now 2 or 3 days late. I have all the same pregnancy symptoms I had with my first kid only a little more cramping. The cramping lasted Friday and Saturday and it felt like my period was surely coming. Friday I had sex and a little bit of brown blood came out, so again I was sure it was coming but nothing. Now today, Sunday, I had sex and my cervix is real sensitive and no blood came out this time. I took a pregnancy test 4 days ago and it was negative. I also took one Friday night and it was negative - except I took it after I had been peeing all day so I don't know if maybe it was diluted. I am holding out on taking another test because they're too expensive to keep wasting. I just want to know if this is normal or if I should be concerned? I hate this wait and not knowing what is going on with my body. I have been on birth control pills 3 other times and this has never happened when I got off of them. Thanks!View Thread
