Pregnancy scare(s)
Please help.
For as long as I have been sleeping with my husband, even though I almost religiously take the pill, I have suspected that I am pregnant.
Each month, I confuse my PMS symptoms for pregnancy symptoms.
So I take myself and my husband on a rollercoaster ride till I see blood(my period) then I settle.

How can I prevent this craziness?
My other question is, if I am pregnant and continue with the pill till i get a positive testing, will I harm the baby?

I am not sure why you are so anxious. As you say, the symptoms you experience are most likely from PMS.
If you are pregnant and carry on with the Pill, it will not harm the fetus, but the failure rate of the Pill is low if you take it correctly.
