Doctor: Hello,If you were on oc pills and also champix for antismoking measure, then it is to be understood that it can reduc e the efficacy of the birth control and make it less effective. If you have missed your periods by 9 days and your pregnancy test is negative now then it is for sure that you are not pregnant.The symptoms you are experiencing, are that of premenstrual syndrome which may mimic early pregnancy symptoms and indicate that your menses are to ensure in few days.I hope i have answered your query in detail,wishing you good health,regards
