Back in October 2009 I was on the pill for about 2 months before I asked my OB to try the depo shot. I got it & like many other women I had a slight bleed for about 6 weeks straight. It made me feel funny & my husband and I decided that it would be okay for me to not be on any birth control & get my hormones back to normal. February 16th was the last possible date I had to get my second shot or go on a different contraceptive. My husband & I have not used any kind of birth control since then.
In March my period was over 3 weeks late & much heavier, & brutal than normal. I went & bought Midol for the first time since I was 13 ! I am very regular, 5 day periods with about 1 full day of it being heavy. No cramps. A week before I got it I took a test & it was negative.
Fast forward to the past 2 weeks: My period isn't "due" for another week & I am bleeding slightly. But it's blackish brown, not what I would consider to be a period. I have random dizzy spells that last about a minute, a heightened sense of smell, not sleeping anymore than 5-6 hours a night, I'm burping & passing gas a little more than normal, & for the last 3 days I have what feels like a rotten stomach. I am eating & going to the bathroom regularly so I know I'm not backed up. But my lower abdomen feels like someone wrapped a fabric headband around it & is slowly pulling at it. (Sorry, that's the only way I can describe it !) I am slightly over weight & have a little pouch, so I wouldn't notice if my belly was getting any bigger.
Last night I took a pregnancy test & It was negative again. So what's the deal ?
