Default Not sure if pregnant?

To start off, I have a 3 month old, so I am not looking to be pregnant.
I have been on birth control since early September, but it is birth control meant for while I am breastfeeding. I have taken it on time every day (I even set an alarm for it). I started ovulating when my daughter was 3 weeks old and got my period by the time she was 5 weeks.

I had a period in September, but missed October and now November. I have lots of thick white discharge, cramping (followed by lower back pain), fatigue, and increased appetite. I have taken 4 home pregnancy tests (2 in October and 2 this month), but they all came back negative.
I'm not sure what is going on. I am married and have a supportive husband, but I wasn't looking to have another baby so soon.

to The Baby Corner. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter.
 


What form of birth control are you using? How frequently is your daughter nursing? When my three were that little, I didn't take hormonal birth control and never got a period until they were at least 6 months old. (Even when we TRIED to get pregnant, I found that I could not get pregnant while nursing--I had to wean my babies before I could achieve another pregnancy.)Perhaps this is what you're experiencing if your daughter is nursing full-time. If you are nursing full-time AND you're using a form of hormonal birth control, it is VERY unlikely that you would be pregnant.

However, if you're that concerned, you should contact your doctor.

I am on Jolivette, which doesn't have estrogen in it. That way I wouldn't dry up while taking the birth control. But, I stopped producing (even though I was breastfeeding almost exclusively) about 1 1/2 months ago. When I stopped producing, she was eating every 2 hours.
And when I started ovulating, my daughter was eating every 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours.

So, as of now, I am on the birth control my doctor prescribed, but not nursing because I stopped producing completely.
