Symptoms:  Nuvigil / the implant bc
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. It is indeed stressful when one is on birth control and feel symptoms associated with pr egnancy especially when the cycles are not regular. There are possibilities of a pregnancy, hence it is better to rule out the same with a beta hCG test. Since your cycles have been irregular. Consult a gynecologist for the same who could guide you further on the test timing. If the pregnancy is ruled out, the symptoms could be due to premenstrual hormonal changes which cause cramps, breast tenderness and bloating sensation and tiredness as well. It is common to not have regular cycles when one is on birth control methods. Polycystic ovaries, thyroid disorder, anemia could also be the other causes for the occasional cycles. Aim at a healthy life style with adequate exercise and a nutritious diet and reduce your stress levels. Avoid coffee, tea and caffeine and drink lots of water, these would help in reducing premenstrual symptoms. Hope this helped Regards
