Doctor

A:   It is really difficult to tell whether you are pregnant or not. Your symptoms could be due to pregnancy but could also be due to other problems as well. Though oral contraceptive are very effective in preventing pregnancy if properly used, there is nothing 100% guaranteed. The bleeding could be your periods starting or an implantation bleed, it's difficult to tell. I would advise a home pregnancy test. Do it in the morning with the first urine sample.
