Take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

Oral contraceptives: If not taken consistently, you may have spotting, bleeding, and you will certainly increase your risk of pregnancy. Please take pills as directed.
