Hope this is the right forum.
I'm on Alesse, taking EXACTLY as directed. Haven't missed a single pill.
Well, last month (April) I started my period the beginning of week 3 of the pills, instead of wk 4 (the "off" week). I kept taking the pills til the end of the week, as directed, even though I was obviously having a period (not just spotting). But instead of taking the next week off, I started a new pack. I am SO afraid of getting pregnant!! (I have four kids!)
So I took the whole pack. Last week was my week off for May and NO PERIOD!! I took a pregnancy test at work and it was neg.
I started a new pack this past Sunday, as directed, even though no period.
What should I do?? I'm afraid of getting pregnant. I'm afraid that maybe I am pregnant (maybe it was too early for the test at work to pick it up) and the pills could cause birth defects. (I also take ambien, what could that do?)
I'm just really worried and not sure what I should do. My husband is scheduled for a vas next month. Wouldn't it just figure that we may have an accident, now ?!
It seems unlikely, though, that I could be pregnant.
Feedback, please !!
