ok well i give the same info to all people who are wondering about being pregnant,i do hope that this info i have put together through my nursing school and personal knowledge will help you! this is an honest answer and probably the best answer you will get without being redirected to another web site or simply being told to just take a test like most others will say! This is a personal experience, i was on birth control pills and i had my period for the first 5 months of my pregnancy and every urine test i took came out negative it wasnt until i took a blood test that i found out i was pregnant. and now i am pregnant again and this time i was on the depo shot to avoid pregnancy and has been breastfeeding before i got on it and was never unprotected other than not using a condom, if you have love without a condom there is ALWAYS a possibility of being pregnant no matter what u do...so here is a list of the top 10 earliest signs of pregnancy!!
10. Tender, swollen breasts
One of the early signs of pregnancy is sensitive, sore breasts caused by increasing levels of hormones. The soreness may feel like an exaggerated version of how your breasts feel before your period. Your discomfort should diminish significantly after the first trimester, as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes.
Feeling tired all of a sudden? No, make that exhausted. No one knows for sure what causes early pregnancy fatigue, but it's possible that rapidly increasing levels of the hormone progesterone are contributing to your sleepiness.
You should start to feel more energetic once you hit your second trimester, although fatigue usually returns late in pregnancy when you're carrying around a lot more weight and some of the common discomforts of pregnancy make it more difficult to get a good night's sleep.
8. Implantation bleeding
Some women have a small amount of vaginal bleeding around 11 or 12 days after conception (close to the time you might notice a missed period). The bleeding may be caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the blood-rich lining of your uterus — a process that starts just six days after fertilization — but no one knows for sure.
The bleeding is very light (appearing as red spotting or pink or reddish-brown staining) and lasts only a day or two. (Let your practitioner know if you notice any bleeding or spotting, particularly if it's accompanied by pain, since this can be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy.)
7. Nausea or vomiting
If you're like most women, morning sickness won't hit until about a month after conception. (A lucky few escape it altogether.) But some women do start to feel queasy a bit earlier. And not just in the morning, either — pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting can be a problem morning, noon, or night.
About half of women with nausea feel complete relief by the beginning of the second trimester. For most others it takes another month or so for the queasiness to ease up.
6. Increased sensitivity to odors
If you're newly pregnant, it's not uncommon to feel repelled by the smell of a bologna sandwich or cup of coffee and for certain aromas to trigger your gag reflex. Though no one knows for sure, this may be a side effect of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in your system. You may also find that certain foods you used to enjoy are suddenly completely repulsive to you.
5. Abdominal bloating
Hormonal changes in early pregnancy may leave you feeling bloated, similar to the feeling some women have just before their period arrives. That's why your clothes may feel snugger than usual at the waistline, even early on when your uterus is still quite small.
4. Frequent urination
Shortly after you become pregnant, you may find yourself hurrying to the bathroom all the time. Why? Mostly because during pregnancy the amount of blood and other fluids in your body increases, which leads to extra fluid being processed by your kidneys and ending up in your bladder.
This symptom may start as early as six weeks into your first trimester and continue or worsen as your pregnancy progresses and your growing baby exerts more pressure on your bladder.
3. A missed period
If you're usually pretty regular and your period doesn't arrive on time, you'll probably take a pregnancy test long before you notice any of the above symptoms. But if you're not regular or you're not keeping track of your cycle, nausea and breast tenderness and extra trips to the bathroom may signal pregnancy before you realize you didn't get your period.
2. Your basal body temperature stays high
If you've been charting your basal body temperature and you see that your temperature has stayed elevated for 18 days in a row, you're probably pregnant.
1. The proof: A positive home pregnancy test
In spite of what you might read on the box, many home pregnancy tests are not sensitive enough to detect most pregnancies until about a week after a missed period. So if you decide to take one earlier than that and get a negative result, try again in a few days. there is a site you can go 2 to look at the exact test you took and see what other people got as either a positive or negative, the site is www.peeonastick.com, this way if you need advice on if its positive or neg this will give you a visual.
Once you've gotten a positive result, make an appointment with your practitioner.

A big sign is missing your period. Other possible causes of missing your period are travel, fatigue, stress, illness, extreme weight gain or loss, going off the pill and breastfeeding.
Morning sickness is also another biggie. It usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception. I started feeling slight waves of nausea around the time my period was due, obvioously it didn't arrive because I'm 13 weeks pregnant! Other possible causes of nausea are food poisioning, emotional stress and a variety of illnesses.
Frequent urination is another sign some women have. It usually rears its ugly head as early as 2-3 weeks after conception. Other possible causes are urinary tract infection, stress or diabetes.
Tingling, tender and swollen breasts is a very common pregnancy symptom. It can occur as early as a few days after conception, I know that was the case for my two pregnancies! Other possible causes are birth control pills and impending menstruation.
Another sign is darkening of the aerola (area around the nipple) and elevation of the tiny glands around the nipple. This usually happens later in the first trimester, although I noticed it around the same time I got a positive pregnancy test, when my period was due. Other possible causes of this are hormonal imbalances or the effect of a prior pregnancy.
A big sign for me was blue and pink lines under skin and later on abdomen. For me, I found that my breasts were the first to look like a road map with blue veins, about 5 days after conception. After that my thighs, hands and feet started to show veins as well. Later on, purple veins appeared under my armpits, on my eyelids and on my cheeks - I have very light skin. This usually occurs later on in the first trimester. Other possible causes are hormone imbalance or the effect of a prior pregnancy.
Food cravings can drive pregnant women insane! They usually appear in the first trimester. Other possible causes include poor diet, stress and impending menstruation.
A big sign for me, was tiredness. I used to almost be an insomniac, and about a week and a half after conception, I struggled to keep my eyes open past 8.00pm.
I also started to have 'grumpy pregnant lady' mood swings!
I'm going to include the link to a trying to conceive forum that I think you might find useful. It's full of supportive women with boundless knowledge about these issues. I learnt so much there that I doubt I would have learnt otherwise.

How long have you been on birth control? Have you had these symptoms before? Usually this only happens the first few months you are on it, and then you adjust to it,,, it usually doesn't continue but even if it did, you would be used to it. Usually once your body adjusts to it you don't get new symptoms.
If your really feeling that something is off, I would wait a bit and take another test. Maybe 2 more weeks. They often don't work early in pregnancy.
If you think you are pregnant, sometimes your body can behave as though it is so make sure it's not just a mental thing.

I blame parenting (if the kids' parents were paying enough attention to them they wouldn't have the chance to "make a baby",and if they were honest with their children their children would feel more comfortable talking to them about wanting/needing birth control/another contraceptive,they'd know how important contraceptives are,an they'd know the dangers of love. I also blame the schools for not having love ed,but it's not the school's responsibility to teach these children about love,it's the parent's. love ed is a good thing,but if the schools aren't teaching it the parents need to. I also blame media,because everything/anything anymore is around/based off of love,and love sells,and these girls see that. If they didn't feel like they have the role models that sold love left and right most of them wouldn't even find it necessary to start having love at a young enough age to be able to plan a pregnancy at 15 and 16. Overexposure.

Even though birth control is a wonderful thing, you have to remember that 1 little % that leave out when saying 99.9% effective..or something like that. I am not trying to make you worry, because worrying is the worst thing that you could do...just incase you are not pregnant, it will cause your period to be late...which will just give you a scare. So my best advice is to relax...keep your mind busy. This has happened to me and my girlfriend a few times. Another thing i am not sure but if you are letting him ejaculate inside of you or not??? really it is your personal business...but just for further notice, it might not be such a great idea..just because you are setting your self up for that 1% chance even more. I would suggest for the future using your birth control plus a contraceptive foam or gel. That is what my girlfriend does...they come prepackaged like a tampon and all you have to do is insert and inject the get or foam...or what have you. We use this just to be cautious to prevent any pregnancies. But please keep in mind that having the responsibility to make love to another person goes along with having responsibility to love a child. good luck to you.
hey...i am sorry for making you feel like i was insulting you by telling you about the 1%....it was not meant in that manner at all...i did not want you to feel like i was here to lecture you. I basically was just trying to say yes it is highly unlikely but there is a small chance. My sister got pregnant while she was on the pill and so did her best friend...and they both took it very responsibly.....so i guess it is just all up to God..I pray the best for you though. Honestly i really don't think that you are i am just saying always be prepared...but like some of the ladies said i am sure it is just stress. Best wishes....jason
