I was about a week late for my period when


Q: I was about a week late for my period when I was put on birth control. I didn't know when I was supposed to get my period, so I just started taking it. Well I had been sexually active with a guy for about 3 months. We always used a condom, except once, but he pulled out. I had taken a couple pregnant tests but they all came back negative. Weeeeell, I missed one day of both control. But the next day I took two, like I'm supposed to, to cover the dosage. I woke up 2 nights ago at like 3 am with extreme cramping and bleeding. I'm not bleeding as much, but I'm still having insane cramping, even in my lower back. I just feel really weak and sick. I have a light headache as well. The thing is, my mom knows about the whole sex thing and pregnancy tests, but she CAN'T know I went and got put on birth control. What could be happening?
