Patient

She is on birth control and I have never ejacualted inside of her so I was kinda hoppin you guys could give me an accurate report of what might be happening. Thank You!

Symptoms:  Spotting, nipple itching.
Doctor

A:   Hello,
If your girlfriend has been on birth control and you both had protected sex all the time then there are no chances of pregnancy. The symptoms of itchy/ sore breasts, mood swings, spotting which she is experiencing is possibly PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME which mimic early pregnancy symptoms and indicates that her menses are going to ensue in few days .
These symptoms would stop by the start or completion of menses.
I hope i have answered your query,
regards
