Am I pregnant?
Dear Doc
I am a mother of 2 healthy boys, aged 5 & 3. However, I am showing quite a few symptoms of pregancy, fatigue, weight, pimples (my normal symptoms). I am however on the pill, Triphasil, which I never miss but might take a bit late. What is the likelywood of me falling pregnant?

The Pill is more than 99% effective. Unless you have missed a period, I do not think that pregnancy should be a concern. The symptoms you describe are also common side effects of the Pill.
