Ok, so I am very new to all this and would really really appreciate advice or opinion? Also apologies in advance for my long story lol. I have been on Microgynon 30 now for 12 years and back in January I had irregular bleeding. Anyway that stopped with meds and stopped pill for few weeks. Anyway I started back on again and everything ok until end of March when bleeding started again for few weeks. All of a sudden it stopped on 14th April, my partner and I had sex on the 16th and still everything ok no bleeding. At 5am on 25th April I woke up with very strong tingly feeling in Uterus...it was so strong and not painful followed by butterfly feeling in abdomen. Sunday I had mild cramping and slight spotting. Since Monday 27th April I have been bloated, little sick, heartburn, backache and so very very tired not to mention having to pee like every hour! Have done a few pregnancy tests this week and 2 ( superdrug ones ) came up with very very faint positive lines, the others which were £1 ones all showed negatives. Anyway I am now 4 days away from pill free break and unsure whether I should wait until late next week to test again or splash out on early response test to use over the weekend? It is driving me mad as so desperate to know and at the same time wondering if i am just being crazy and that it's something else causing the symptoms. Some of my friends say that I could be having a phantom pregnancy but its not like I have been trying to conceive or fonstantly think about being pregnant. Anyway just some advice or opinion would be fab! Xx

Hi, no pill is 100% and a positive is promising, a superdrug test Is quite sensitive so the other brand may just not be so sensitive and if you are early on this little difference in sensitivity will be the difference between bfp and bfn.
Try again with superdrug / first response In a couple days when the hgc will have had time to double x
As long as positive is right colour, place and developed in right time u can trust results xx
Good luck and keep us posted x

Thank u so much for your reply busymamma I was worried that it could have been an evap line but the line was pink although very very faint and smack bang in the middle of the test window. Will test on Sunday and Monday and post an update. Xx

My first tests were so faint they were dismissed as evap, took to CD 31 to get decent + and 5 days later for clear blue! I'm now 7+1 weeks x
Good luck x

Ok so update since my last post, did a clear blue digi on Monday morning as couldnt get hold of a Frer but came up not pregnant. Dod Superdrug one today mid afternoon though and came up negative. Still having pregnancy symptoms and my areolas seem to have gone a little darker. Pill break doesnt start till tomorrow. Should I test again tomorrow morning with a Frer or wait it out to see if AF comes? So confused right now as i feel different in myself but no physical sign on recent tests

Hi again, I think any AF you get will be induced by the break from pills, not a natural AF so you can still be pg.
If you are still getting symptoms and bfns I'd go speak to your gp - could these be side effects of the pill you take?
Not sure what else to suggest x good luck x
