Customer Question

Hiya I have been taking the pill as normal and correctly and have had normal 'periods' the last one ending a week ago...I have put on a few lbs over the last couple of weeks and have cramping in my lower stomach since my last period. I did take a course of slimming tea a couple of months ago but never had diarrhoea or vomiting...and been having sex with my boyfriend...could I be pregnant?

It is highly unlikely you are pregnant with normal periods, and using birth control correctly. About 1/1000 chance. If you are worried, do a home pregnancy test.
