Wondering if I am experiencing early pregnancy symptoms.


Q: What are my chances that I am pregnant?

Symptoms:  Previous to the birth control pack i am currently on, i had a bizzare "period" a week before my sugar pills. It was not the usual break through spotting ive experienced while taking birth control. it was also surprising because i had been consistently taking my pills for months so i was surprised to see my period so early! The period lasted three days and i continued taking my pills that week and went on to my sugar pills, and got another period for three days during! This period (the bleeding) stopped two days before i finished my sugar pills but i continued taking them until they were finished.After I was done taking my sugar pills, I forgot to take myfirst active pill of the new pack! So i went an extra 24hours without an active pill.Its been three weeks since the day i forgot my first active pill and i feel pregnant... i had lots of unprotected sex in and around this time, including the day i forgot. I feel pregnant because ive started getting headaches ( i usually never do), and ive been having constant mild cramping this past week and yesterday i started being unusually wet down there, as well as im a darker color down there now. I have still been taking my active pills and i have 6 more to take before i am on my sugar pills again. Please what are your opinions?
