I have missed birth control like 3 days in a row and I have had unprotected sex could I be pregnant? A and if you miss birth control does it cause you to cramp and your breast be tender?

I have missed birth control like 3 days in a row and I have had unprotected sex could I be pregnant? A and if you miss birth control does it cause you to cramp and your breast be tender?

Missing: Missing 3 days of birth control definitely puts you at risk for pregnancy. The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you - whichever is easier for you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come.

I also attached some information on the birth control pill and what to do if you miss any. ...Read more

In woman w/pof, can thick uterus lining cause ovul. Symptms like eggwhite mucus, PMS symptms like sore breasts, then mild cramps/slight brown dschrge?

But more recent research shows that they will have random spontaneous ovulations more often that we thought possible. ...Read more
