Been on it for almost two weeks. I have patches of shot hair on my head (1 inch and under). Recently, I have been incredibly nauseous and had every symptoms of pregnancy. I don’t think I am pregnant just had all the same symptoms of my last pregnancy ( my DS is 1 years old). Really confused as the first 12 days I was fine but the day before my predicted ovulation day on my Clue app, I started cramping, also the day after I was physical with my BF. The day after my ovulation ( day 18 in my cycle) until yesterday ( day 20 in my cycle) I have been experiencing pregnancy symptoms… To the point food was difficult to stomach and I just wanted to sleep. I feel a lot better today though my abdomen feels very odd. Heavy, bloated feeling with cramping every now and then. I only experience that before my period and that is over a week away. I’d also like to mention that was a pregnancy symptom of mine. No idea if it is a delayed reaction to the mini pill which gives you pregnancy symptoms or if it is due to me being sensitive to contraceptive pills. I was on COC ( 19 days only) and had to have a load of tests for a blood clot that they then couldn’t find after I took three days worth of blood thinners. Not sure what is going on.
