Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

If you are on the pill and your test is negative then you are not pregnant

The pill is essentially greater than 99% effective if you take it regularly

The breast tingling and cramps could be side effects of the pill

I would ask your doctor to possibly change to another pill

But I suspect they are side effects




I hope this helps.

If you have more questions, just reply. :)
