Late period while on the pill.

hi, i'm getting very worried.  I've been on Yasmin birth control for about a year and a half now.  I've never really had any problems with it until now.  I always got my period by the third or fourth day of the non-active pills.  But I am starting my fifth non-active pill today and i still have not got my period.  I had a highly emotionally stressful last few days, yesterday in particular, but i'm not sure if stress can affect your period while on the pill.  i took a HPT yesterday morning and it was negative, but i am getting very scared.  I was sexually active and there were 2 times i forgot my pill and took it the next day.  and i didn't always take the pill at the same time of day.  I feel like i should be getting my period, i have the same symptoms i usally get with feeling bloated etc.  but still no period!  please help me figure this out!

Call your doc and explain you just told us.  They can give you a blood pregnancy test to be sure.

It's not uncommon for your period to get very light or stop sometimes on BCP's after you've been on them a long time.  Sometimes the doc will have you switch types.

Are you really thin or underweight?  That could cause you to stop getting your period.

Hi,
  I am having a similar problem. I have been on BC pills for 3 years, Ive never missed a pill or taken one late Im very good about it. My period usually comes every 24 days and starts on tuesday well is going sunday and i have not gotten it yet. Uusually before i get my period i get swollen breast, PMS, and cramps I have not had any of that. I am very nervous that I may pregant since the latest my period has ever been in the last 3 years is 1 day and im going 6. My boyfriend and I do not use condoms because im allergic to latex so i make him withdrawal. My face has broken out which it never has even during puberty i never had pimples now my face is covered, and i had morning sickness last 2 days. I have neither gaiend or lost weight but I have always been thin im 5'7 and on;y 115 ive always been thin which is part of the reason i put on brith control to help regulate my periods. I also suffer from anemia but that has never affected my cycle so dont think thats a factor. Everyone mentions stress could affect it but I was stress untill 3days ago now im having a panic attack. I took a HPT it said negative but i dont trust. I am going to see my doctor on tuesday but would liek advice or similar stories cause i dont know what to do?
