Late period!

I've been on birth control for nine years consistently. I've never had a scare before. I am now two days late for my period, and I'm totally freaked.

Usually, I take the ring out on a Wednesday, cramp Friday evening and have my period when I wake up on Saturday. My last period came Saturday afternoon, after I took it out late wednesday night in June.

This month, I removed it Thursday morning. Did not cramp until Saturday afternoon and NOTHING since. No discharge, very very slight cramping (which I may be making up), no period at all. I took a test this morning, but nothing happened on it and am waiting until I can pee again.

Has this happened to anyone else? I could be pregnant, but I've taken BC for so long and been so careful, I really just don't know how it's possible. Has anyone else been late on birth control?

I really doubt you are. When your taking your BC as described its like 99% effective. Sometimes your period just does what it wants. Take a preganncy test and if your period doesnt come within a few days call your doctor. good luck
