Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I was on the progestogen only pill for almost 4 years. I didn't have a period from the day I started taking it. So no period in nearly 4 years!! I stopped taking my pill 14th April and haven't even had a withdrawal bleed yet. The last week or so I've had really sore breast particularly the nipple and belly cramps! Could I be pregnant (or is it way too early?) or could this be my period on its way?
Thanks in advance for any replies! X

Well it could be either! You may be pregnant if you've ovulated and had sex and the right time, it could be Aunt Flo. Only way to know for sure is to take a test. Trouble being you've got no idea when you may have ovulated so harder to know potentially how far along you could be.

Thanks for replying! So, I think I'm going to take a test but no idea when to do it and whether it will be ridiculously early! do you think my symptoms are a sign that id be far gone enough to test?

Honestly I don't know, I've never been pregnant (not actively trying yet) so I can't answer that. It can't hurt to take a test, it will either be negative as its to early, negative because you're not pregnant or positive. I guess if it's negative maybe invest in some cheap tests off the net and test once a week until you get a positive or your period. When I came off the pill at Christmas my first two cycles I had some sensitive nipples between my ovulation and period coming so it could be that your period is on its way, it could be that you're pregnant.
