    Hi there ladies!
    Bit of a long winded story but ill cut it down to the point!

    Have been on Cerazette minipill for around 12 months now. Have never had consistent periods on this pill but have been assured by GP this is perfectly normal.
    However, i haven't had a period at all now for around 8 weeks. Not a quick one day bleed, nothing!
    This alone wouldn't usually have phased me, however, me & my OH had intercourse last week and i noticed a bit of pure red blood after. It was only a few drops, i assumed this was my period coming on (Not great timing but hey) but have had for 2 days, and then have been having very light brown discharge every day since.
    Have also had mild stomach cramps and my breasts feel more swollen and just larger in general than usual.
    I dont know whether im going crazy, just wanting to be pregnant and therefore convincing myself that i am!
    My GP has referred me to nurse practioner to carry out a cervix check tomorrow (monday am) to rule out any possible cysts etc, and has said to take a pregnancy test in two weeks to rule out pregnancy, although im thinking maybe i should take a test sooner?

    Anybody been through anything similar or has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Please don't read & run where possible!!! :)

    I am surprised your doctor is saying to wait 2 weeks to take a test, when you could already be 8 weeks pregnant? i would be taking a test now, especially before you let someone go poking about at your cervix tomorrow.

    I replied in your other post, but yes take a test immediately, one tonight, then one with your first morning urine tomorrow before attending the nurse xx
